Did you all just see that? The IBM Jeopardy Challenge kicked off tonight, and Watson, the IBM-developed artificial intelligence absolutely more than held his own against his human competition. Mechanical men!
At the end of day one (it’s a three-day tournament), Watson, along with Brad Rutter, leads with $5,000. Poor Ken Jennings has only $2,000 to his name.
I can’t even pretend to be impartial—I’m pulling for Watson all the way here, and I, for one, welcome our new artificial intelligence overlords.Source: http://www.crunchgear.com/2011/02/14/angry-nerds-ibms-watson-finish...
