IBM's game-playing super computer gets a big boost.

FOX's Kerin McCue has the story:

We all remember the big-splash "Watson" made on Jeopardy:

(Jeopardy) "Watson... Who is Jude? Yes... Olympic oddities for $200..."

But IBM's cognitive computing system was built for more than just winning 'Daily Doubles'.

The Armonk, New York, based company is buying Truven Health Analytics for $2.6-billion to bolster Watson's health care capabilities.

They say this deal will net more than 8,000 clients. With all the health-related data it can hold, an aggregate of nearly 300 million patients could benefit.

This agreement with Truven is IBM's fourth health-related acquisition since they launched their Watson health cloud computing platform last spring.
