"Over the last century, global water usage has increased at twice the rate of population growth, impacting society across the board from public health to economics to energy consumption. Obviously, this supply and demand ratio isn’t sustainable, and big changes in the way we manage this precious resource are an imperative. Collaboration among companies, municipal and government leaders, water managers and citizens will be essential as we continue to look for new ways to innovate in the water management industry."

"After four years, our scientific team believes that Watson is ready for this challenge based on its ability to rapidly comprehend what the Jeopardy! clue is asking, analyze the information it has access to, come up with precise answers, and develop an accurate confidence in its response. Beyond our excitement for the match itself, our team is very motivated by the possibilities that Watson’s breakthrough computing capabilities hold for building a smarter planet and helping people in their business tasks and personal lives."
