What can you tell me about Expert Systems?
I work for a technology company where there are hundreds of very smart engineers such as Electrical Engineers, Chemical Engineers and Manufacturing engineers.
They are all very smart and skilled. But the downside of every one is they are human.
I look at Supercomputers, like Summit, by IBM (200 Trillion computations per second), as well as Watson, which I know very little about, and I worry that Watson could wipe out small businesses like the one I work for.
How close are Expert Systems like Watson from performing completed designs, automatically? Let's say, for example, an integrated circuit.
I am curious to hear what a company that sees Watson as their true competition can do on a shoestring budget to harness their own engineers knowledge in a form that can be coalesced into a internal use only decision support system.
The sky's the limit on your theories...This is a wide open question, meant to tickle the mind.
