    Is Watson the start of the "TERMINATOR" movies? Could the "smart" pc think for itself and then learn to protect itself?

    IBM's demonstration of their incredible innovations in artificial intelligence in Watson is truly remarkable. But the initial application in medical care - even if used only for synthesizing vast volumes of information - opens up significant liability complications. Where, for example, will responsibility ultimately lie? If a physician undertakes a procedure based on faulty synthesis of information, is it the physician's fault, or is it Watson's? Not impossible to figure out, but it will certainly be a new dynamic to deal with.

    While it appears that Dr. Watson is programed and dedicated to serve the medical field, I'd like to know when we'll get a US President Watson or a Congressional Watson. The thought may be scary, but I think, no more than our countries current prognosis.
