I just came across this meetup tonight about IBM's Watson. It looks cool
and has a small python influence.


Watson itself is written in Java, IIRC, but you can imagine the ecosystem
of tools needed to build, support, and analyze a system of Watson's

Last year at SciPy there was a talk titled, "Analyzing IBM Watson
experiments with IPython Notebook"

There's a slide around the 12 minute mark showing the tools needed to build
their analysis. They started with multiple tools (java, javascript/D3,
html/css) which totaled 8,350 lines of code and replaced it with the
IPython notebook totaling 220 lines of code.

220 > 8350 !!!
