Digitally signing a PDF in Linux

So I don't forget, the instructions to digitally sign a PDF in Linux are as follows:

First create a key using Java's keytool if you don't already have one. The command is

keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA -keysize 4096 -alias alias -keystore .keystore

Then, use JSignPDF to sign the PDF file. Make sure to select "JKS" from the keystore type.

Primary sources on Watson

Articles from the IBM Research blog about how Watson works:

A Nova episode on Watson, entitled "Smartest Machine on Earth"

A technical article in AI Magazine describing in detail how Watson works.

An article describing "the Basement Baseline" that IBM commissioned to be sure they wouldn't be beat by some upstart hacker in a basement.

A spreadsheet of raw data on Watson's performance.

Other stuff, including actual video of the episodes should be appearing at Some intersting stuff that's there now:

There's lots of news coverage, but this is the stuff that I'm aware of that's most interesting to people in the NLP field (like me) or close to it.
