IBM's Watson Serves As A Research Assistant To Dermatologists
Modernizing Medicine is partnering with the tech company to embed the platform into their dermatologist software package.
Early last year IBM revealed that it plans to invest up to $1 billion into Watson, its cognitive computing platform. The tech company also announced that $100 million of that investment will go to venture capital for companies that are developing new ways to use Watson for their products or businesses.
One of those companies turns out to be Florida-based company Modernizing Medicine, a firm that develops electronic medical record (EMR) systems that can be used on an iPad or through a web portal. The company is planning to embed Watson into their dermatologist software package, EMA Dermatology.
