Intellext announced the general availability of Watson 2.0. The latest downloadable version of Watson lets users select their favorite information sources and see the results that Watson proactively retrieves in a desktop sidebar. Watson’s sidebar display is continuously updated with real-time information that is relevant to the work being done at any given moment. Organizations can configure Watson to get information from any searchable source, using Intellext’s XML-based integration technology. Connecting Watson to enterprise knowledge systems can increase the usage of internal knowledge assets. New features added during the Watson 2.0 beta program include a Sidebar Display, an Information Source Wizard, Integration with desktop search applications (MSN, X1, and Google) and interfaces with research services. Watson 2.0 now works with the Firefox, in addition to Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Outlook, and Internet Explorer. A free trial of Watson can be downloaded at
