What is IBM Watson for Oncology?

It is well known that doctors and scientists are facing a deluge of new information every day including new scientific reports, results from recent clinical trials, and new clinical guidelines. This explosion of information is creating an overwhelming challenge to both researchers and clinicians. Cognitive solutions can address this challenge by reading and evaluating the literature, and by “learning” from clinical experience to offer evidence-based recommendations for treatment.


IBM Watson is creating a new partnership between people and computers that can enhance the human experience. Treating cancer is ideally suited to benefit from Watson’s cognitive capabilities because of the large body of data required to correctly treat patients with this disease, one of the leading causes of death in the world today. Watson for Oncology is a cognitive computing solution that quickly processes the patient’s own personal data, the fast-growing medical literature, the guidelines of recognized world-class experts, and the experience of specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Based on this information, Watson for Oncology then provides expert personalized treatment recommendations for consideration and use by oncologists.
