The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence

Available in Library

Watson: trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell’s first telephone; unstoppable super-computer that became reigning Jeopardy! champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. These four constant companions become one in this time-jumping tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people—and machines—upon which we all depend.
