Since the attack, HPMC medical personnel reportedly have had to resort to faxes and handwritten charts to perform their daily tasks. The hospital called in the Los Angeles Police Department and the FBI to investigate the incident.

How IBM's Watson supercomputer is battling cancer with advanced genomics
