Microsoft Disses Watson
 
Microsoft Has Their Own Poet/Computer Scientist

A look at a patent from Microsoft on how Bing may use natural language processes to:

- Understand Questions
- Formulate Queries About Those Questions
- Gather Evidence (find answers) on the Web
- Extract and Rank Answers

In the patent application, the Microsoft Research Asia team behind it has some unkind words to say about IBMs Watson (which likely also apply to the Star Trek Computer building crew at Google as well).

The patent breaks down the kinds of information that it might look for during each of those 4 phases, and provides an example of question answering with a question that could have been taken straight from Jeopardy.

I suspect the Microsoft Research Asia team would like to have Bing (or a future Bing with this natural language question answering engine installed) take on Watson in a game or two of Jeopardy.

The "question" from the patent:

“Shortly after this `Gretchen am Spinnrade` composer met Beethoven, he was a torchbearer at his funeral.”

Nice results: Machine learning for walking

Thanks to +Ivan DeWolf  et al. for the link to this very impressive work using optimization to discover muscle placement and controllers. Watch the video! My friend +Michiel van de Panne is the middle author. Paper here: http://www.staff.science.uu.nl/~geijt101/papers/SA2013/

Introduction
Computer Scientist, Developer, Blogger from Berlin, Germany. 

Currently I work as a consultant for a german software company in topics of Business IT Management and software development. 

My study topics are artificial intelligence, technical cognition, natural language understanding and processing, search engine personalization, process optimization, structural technical design and technical architectures of software. 

I founded the german Google Watch Blog, a news site about Web 2.0 technologies and worked in a university project for a political communication portal. My private non tech hobbies are cycling, photography and music. 

Have fun with technology.
