A JOURNEY TO DARFUR, SUDAN

 

“In April 2006 veteran journalist Nick Clooney was asked by his son, George, to accompany him to the troubled region of Darfur. The goal was to shine a light on the modern day genocide occurring in this remote and desolate region of Africa.”    Cf. video

“ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of 3.5 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa… because the facts show extreme poverty has already been cut in half and can be virtually eliminated by 2030, but only if we act with urgency now.


Supporter: George has supported this cause and appeared in many PSA’s along with his father and attended many fund-raising events to help raise awareness”

“George, Nick his father, and some politicians were arrested outside of the Sudanese embassy in Washington D.C. during March of 2012. They were protesting the country’s blockade of supplies and humanitarian aid.”

From Wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watson_(computer)
Watson is a supercomputer system “capable of answering questions”. A search engine will return a list of documents ranked in order of relevance to the query, while Watson will return an answer to a question.

 

 

IBM explains Watson: http://www.ibm.com/smarterplanet/us/en/ibmwatson/what-is-watson.html

 

Ginni describes Watson at time point ~15:40 (time from end)

 

At ~18:45 Ginni mentions that they now want to give Watson “eyes” so that he can process melanoma examinations and provide answers concerning the diagnosis (benign/malignant etc).

 

At one point of the interview after Ginni has explained the applications of Watson in health care, Charlie Rose says:

 

“I want to transform law and journalism.”

 

Ginni will provide a use case for legal.

 

Ginni at ~29:00 cites the Commercial Research Labs that IBM created in Africa and Australia to provide solutions for local communities.
