Web copy 2: UNCC Offers The New "Jeopardy" Watson Course
UNCC is one of three colleges in the U.S. offering a new course developed from a computer system named Watson, which competed against champions from Jeopardy.
Watson won against two of the highest ranked Jeopardy players, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. After the competition, researchers came up with the idea of creating a course.
The course will cover text analytics and business applications. It will be taught by the core member of the Watson team, Wlodek Zadrozny. The new course will offer students the opportunity of building model projects through a collection of technologies. It will be taught with a mixture of hands-on experience, lectures and projects.
According to a press release, Zadrozny said, “In the process, students will learn scalable techniques of text mining, data mining, information retrieval and machine learning.”
The course, called Semantic Technologies, which was first introduced at Columbia University, in 2013.
