Doctors in some of China's major hospitals may have a new tool soon that can help them provide personalized treatment options to cancer patients.

Watson for Oncology, a cognitive computing platform - a sort of super brain developed by IBM - is expected to be put into service in November at 22 major hospitals, including Wuxi People's Hospital in Jiangsu province, and Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, according to Yao Wan, a marketing manager at Hangzhou CognitiveCare Co, a company in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, that cooperated with IBM to introduce the technology to China.

"We are providing training for doctors on how to use the platform in Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Beijing," she said.
