IBM Watson (super Computer) Mondegreens and Rock and Roll!

Watson's_avatarMondegreens. I had never heard of that word until I got an email the other day. I had to look it up. It means “a misunderstood or misinterpreted word or phrase resulting from a mishearing of the lyrics of a song.” We all have done that. Hear one thing but think it says another thing. Remember “Blinded by the Light”? Perfect example of misinterpreted lyrics.

Enter IBM Watson and a team of Scientists. A super computer. Remember it took on two of the smartest Jeopardy contestants and won back in 2011. It was recently given in a sort of non scientific rigorous way lyrics to interpret. Among the lyrics it was given was from songs by Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Sir Elton John and Van Halen!

For the shocking and somewhat humorous outcome go here. (You will have to scroll down the page some)
