really liked it
bookshelves: computers
Read from April 30 to November 05, 2011

A pretty complete account of all aspects surrounding this historic match. Mainly a human interest story, it lacked what I was looking for - more detailed descriptions of the algorithms that were used. I would not recommend it if you are looking to read more about the technical aspects of Watson but it's still very interesting.

UPDATE 5/27/2012
This presentation by Dr. David Ferrucci, where he talks about programming Watson, is a nice supplement to this book
