Google’s Android operating system is now the leading OS on Millenial Media’s mobile ad network. 46% of ad impressions were made on Android, with Apple’s iOS trailing at 32%. Millenial Media reaches 80% of US mobile phones, suggesting a similar trend across the board. In other news, IBM’s supercomputer Watson bested former champions in a practice round of Jeopardy. In development for four years, Watson can recognize human speech, evaluate a question and look through 200 million pages of content for an answer in three seconds. Watson’s AI will soon challenge Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter for a million dollar prize. And finally, the JFK Library plans to digitize every artifact in its collection. Over 200,000 pages along with a slew of photos, audio and video will make its way online. The library’s director hopes that releasing the material will help democratize the study of history by giving us the chance to see it ourselves.
