And guess what? Watson just beat former champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter at a Jeopardy test match!

  1. I’m actually surprised to see that the contest was so close, assuming that it had the internet at it’s disposal. I expected better of Watson. Was the delay from a lack of resources or processing speed? Meet the predecessor of world robot domination.

    • Wow, I didn’t even know it had happened already. As for the outcome, I have no idea but I’ll bet we’ll end up getting an earful of speculation! A search shows the whole thing will be aired on Jeopardy on Feb. 14-16. Must set my DVR!
