No one knows for sure, but it is rumored that Wattson was developed in Alexander Graham Bell’s lab just before the turn of the twentieth century. It is thought that Brightbot was actually the assistant Bell was referencing when he exclaimed, “Wattson!” on the first voice call. What we do know for sure is that Wattson has held many technical positions within the industry for over a century allowing him to gain valuable experience and formulate his revolutionary "Concierge Approach" to customer service.
