In this thesis I present my research on artificial intelligence (AI) and predictions associated with it. I also examine one of its current forms – Watson, cognitive technology developed by IBM, which has gained worldwide attention after winning ‘Joepardy!’ over human contestants.
Further, I utilize my analysis of current development in AI – Watson, in order to determine if AI is capable of developing expertise. For that purpose I analyze what constitutes expertise in humans and examine if the necessary constituents are present in Watson, presuming that current AI is generally build modeling human cognition, considering that it is a cognitive technology.
