MD Anderson To Use IBM’s Watson To Fight Cancer

HOUSTON (October 18, 2013)--The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston has employed IBM's Watson cognitive computer system in its ongoing war on cancer.

MD Anderson and IBM planned to showcase a prototype of the Watson-powered Oncology Expert Adviser Friday afternoon at the Houston cancer institute.

The program is a big part of MD Anderson's Moon Shot Program, a program announced last year to expedite converting scientific discoveries in cancer therapies into clinical advances.
