The robot that famously pwned in Jeopardy is heading to Wall Street.
IBM’s Watson, which defeated two of Jeopardy’s greatest champions, will be working for Citigroup to analyze big data, Bloomberg reports.
Banks spend about $400 billion on IT in 2011. Watson is expected to help Citi identify risks, rewards and consumer wants.
Watson, named after IBM founder Thomas J. Watson, was a proud of four years by 25 scientists. The robot’s brain comprises 200 million pages of information, about 1 million books’ worth.
