The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence

by Madeleine George

February, 2011. A programmer perfects her new AI as IBM's Watson wins its Jeopardy tournament.
March, 1891. Dr. Watson takes his first solo case without Sherlock Holmes at his side.
March, 1876. The first voice communication by wire.
March, 1931. Thomas A. Watson is interviewed at Bell Labs about the famous quote.

Madeleine George (author of 2013's hit Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England) premieres a brand new version of her stunning 2014 Pulitzer Award finalist: a time hopping comic meditation on technology, love and communication over the last 150 years. Directed by Jeremy Wechsler, and starring Chicago favorites Joe Dempsey, Joe Foust and Kristina Valada-Viars, The (curious case of the) Watson Intelligence is going to be a dizzying trip with four Watsons and eight million human hearts.
