IBM supercomputer Watson is to help determine the best treatments for a common type of brain cancer.

Fast: “It can process 500GB of information - equivalent to a million books - every second.”

Efficient: “Watson has become smaller and faster over the years.”
“available via the cloud, meaning it can be accessed from anywhere”

Reliability: “help make decisions about lung cancer treatment”
examine huge amounts of data and can also understand human language”
