Jeopardy! winnings spur IBM and Scripps Research Institute collaboration to fight against malaria
Date:11/18/2011

evalent, the disease can account for 40 percent of all public health costs.

Earlier this year, scientists for seven World Community Grid projects received half the $1 million first-place prize from a Jeopardy! game show tournament that saw IBM's Watson computing system compete successfully against two former human champions. (Watson, named after IBM founder Thomas J. Watson, was built by a team of IBM scientists who set out to overcome a longstanding scientific challengebuilding a computing system that rivals a human's ability to answer questions posed in natural language with speed, accuracy and confidence.)

The team at Scripps Research successfully proposed a project whose design and development would benefit from the winnings. Perryman, who describes the malaria project in more detail at in a blog at http://ibm.co/tiMRC2 and a video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jwgx_RZXzp4, added, "Without the funding provided by some of the money that Watson won on Jeopardy!, this Global Online Fight Against Malaria project would not have been possible."
