Why 'Watson' matters to lawyers

Today, the amount of information available to lawyers is practically unmanageable. Because of the digitization of data and the ever expanding reach of the Internet, we now have easy access to an ocean of unstructured information: news stories, academic essays, technical documents, blog postings, Facebook pages, Twitter tweets, Flickr photos and YouTube videos. This abundance can help us do our jobs better - if it doesn't overwhelm us.

I'm proud to say that a new technology emerging from the research laboratories of IBM looks as though it could become a real boon to the legal profession. - Robert C. Weber, National Law Journal
