By: Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity
IBM recently announced that it will provide the Watson system to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) (http://www.rpi.edu/)
“We’re excited that Watson is coming to RPI, and it simply makes sense to invite him to join our organization,”
Once accepting the bid, Watson will be an associate member of the fraternity, spending several weeks learning about the history, traditions, and values of Phi Kappa Theta. Upon completion of the associate member period, Watson will be eligible to become a brother of the fraternity.
