In the healthcare sector, Watson has partnered with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Care Center to help doctors make better cancer treatment choices. Most recently, in the retail space, Watson has teamed up with Macy’s to create a mobile tool that enables shoppers to ask questions while shopping in-store.
