John,    (01)

But, and this is really really important, it leveraged Linked Datasets 
such as DBpedia and others from the Linked Open Data cloud.    (02)

Structured Linked Data, Machine Learning, and Natural Languages are 3 
equally critical components of the Watson story. Take one of these 
components out of the mix and Watson doesn't happen.    (03)

As you know, the Watson setup itself speaks volumes about how IBM put 
all of the above to use. I fantasize about a Machine vs Machine edition 
of Jeopardy (in the future) that pits algorithms against algorithms 
where all parties (other players in this realm) have a common structured 
linked substrate as the knowledgebase foundation :-)    (04)
