Perhaps evidence-based medicine over structured data may help to to check 
Watson's new medical knowledge?
Sorely, if the knowledge base and learning algorithm of Watson is based on a 
dynamic, but single algortihm as opposed to a data base.
This is the recursive algorithm used in medical inquiry and treatment:    (01)

patient has complaint
Examine patient (run the various types to establish diagnosis)
Diagnosis found
Is treatment/therapy available from medical history files for similar or 
identical patiens/cases,symptoms, etc.that have proven "cured or worked" record?
Apply therapy (kinds of palliative, conservative, chemical, radiation, physico, 
Patine has complaint?
Call the undertaker    (02)

Attention is the weakest, but a minimum form of connecting.
It is also the minimum price you pay for getting connected.
Getting connected means exchanging information. "Information is transformation"
