Re: What happens when Watson gets it wrong?
The risk mitigation to that is that Watson has always been designed to formulate a set of responses and rank them according to what it sees as probability of correctness.  The human "decides", while Watson merely recommends.  Watson HAS gotten things wrong, as evidenced by a few questions in the Jeopardy games.  That fundamental uncertainty is why the aforementioned approach was taken.
