Smartest Machine on Earth

Watson is a result of IBM’s DeepQA Project whose goal is to develop “a computer system that can directly and precisely answer natural language questions over an open and broad range of knowledge”. Watson is made up of a cluster of ninety IBM Power 750 servers (plus additional I/O, network and cluster controller nodes in 10 racks) with a total of 2880 POWER7 processor cores and 16 Terabytes of RAM. Each Power 750 server uses a 3.5 GHz POWER7 eight core processor, with four threads per core.
