Chibi IBM Watson-tan by BellaCielo Chibi IBM Watson-tan by BellaCielo
A -tan for the IBM Watson artificial intelligence program; aka The Jeopardy Playing Computer. :D

-Watson-tan is best friends with Linux-sama (Watson runs on SuSE Linux)
-Very tall and rather *ahem* endowed (the computer it runs on is purported to have 15 TERABYTES RAM)
-Has an eidetic memory and encyclopedic knowledge (Watson has many reference sites and books stored on its HDDs, eliminating the need to be connected to the internet to work)
-Wears large rectangular glasses (refers to the glass panel in front of computer system [link] )
-Competitive with humans (AND HOW!)
-Surrounded by a swarm of luminescent threads that react to her emotions (see: Watson's avatar)
-Bioluminescent blue-green hair (again, see the computer system and avatar)
-Has colour-changing eyes (splotchy light + dark blue normally, green when she's happy, orange when she's upset)
-Seems to have an obsession with certain numbers (especially 42).
-At least one-quarter Massachusettsan in upbringing (MIT was in on the project.... yeyyyyyy~)

Pen and ink lineart; colouring in Photoshop CS4

I saw this on wakachan. So, it was you who drew it! I really like the design. The combo of business-like and fanservicey works.

Hehe, I remember seeing it on Wakachan too. Glad you like the design and don't think it's too over-the-top. ^^; I really wanna do a full-body picture featuring her.

O.o

I always thought Watson was male.

But great pic none the less!

Most OS-tans are portrayed as girls, though. >w<

Thanks. ^^

I didn't watch the Jeopardy match because I couldn't find which channel it was on (I fail. :( ), but I heard that he won, yes?

Anyways, what an awesome design! She's so colorful and glowy and the design simply suits Watson really well. Glad you took initiative with creating Watson-tan! I never did get to drawing a concept sketch, but had envisioned her with a more mystical flair for some reason.

Blargh, that nearly happened to me. Took quite a bit of hunting to find a channel that aired Jeopardy. :\ Yes! Even though he had a few close calls in the first round, Watson pulled ahead spectacularly in the second and third.

Thanks, I did a ton of doodling before I was happy with a design. Mystical, you say? I'm sure Watson's rather fabulous avatar (and the huge amount of hype surrounding it as the GREATEST AI EVER BUILT~) influenced your concept for her. ;P

Knew I should have tried harder searching for the channel with Jeopardy on it. ^^;

Yeah, you're right- I thought of Watson-tan being the mystical type because of Watson's avatar. It looks cool and other-worldly. :)

Ah, can I ask one little question? ^^'
Why did you decide to make Watson a girl?
They used a man's voice, you see...
