This is Jeopardy!

In the past we tested the prowess of our supercomputers by teaching them to play chess and pitting them against humanity’s greatest players.  Today we test our supercomputers by filling them up with trivia, arming them with a quick trigger finger, and pitting them against America’s greatest Jeopardy! contestants.


On February 14th, 15th, and 16th, IBM’s Watson will compete against Jeopardy! superstars Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter

Here is a video of a recent trial run–Watson gets off to a dominating start, but Ken Jennings puts some points on the board. 


This should be a lot of fun.  I can’t wait to see what Watson’s Daily Double strategy is!
