Intellext announced a free version of Watson. To Watson, the search box becomes a middle man between you and the information you need. The tool understands the context of what a computer user is working on and actively finds relevant search results from Web search engines, desktop search applications, news sites and more. The free version is designed to give consumers a complete experience, connecting them with the information they need most, from a shopping comparison feature, to the web, news and blogs. Watson Professional, the licensed version of the product, remains available for business users who want to take the product’s capabilities to the next level, customizing and integrating Watson to search their subscription sources and enterprise information systems. In both the free Watson and the licensed Watson Professional, user privacy is respected. Intellext does not receive information about what the user is looking at, and does not track the links clicked, or the pages viewed. So, personal information never leaves the user’s computer and privacy is protected.
