WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Dr. Watson is accepting new patients.
IBM says two medical applications using the Watson supercomputer are being offered for commercial use.
One application helps diagnose and treat lung cancer. The other helps manage health insurance decisions and claims.
Both applications take advantage of the speed, huge database and language skill the computer has already demonstrated. It defeated the best human "Jeopardy!" players on television two years ago.
