Eight leading universities, including three from Canada, will help IBM to teach its Watson computer system to tackle cybercrime. Caleb Barlow, vice president of IBM Security, says it's becoming increasingly difficult for security staff to deal with the growing number of cyber threats often as many as 200-thousand per day.

The students will input about 15-thousand security documents per month during the year-long project, starting this fall.)
