IBM’s Watson Computer vs Jeopardy Champions

IBM is pitting its supercomputer, Watson, against two intellectual giants on the hit show Jeopardy!

The Watson computer system is different than anything else you have seen due to the fact that its knowledge is as self contained as any single human being. Watson’s ability to understand the meaning and context of human language, and rapidly process information to find precise answers to complex questions, holds enormous potential to transform how computers help people accomplish tasks in business and their personal lives.

Jeopardy! is aired locally from 7:00 to 7:30 pm on local channels.

    In the end of the three day humans vs. machine jeopardy challenge, the IBM Watson computer easily defeated its human opponents.

    Watson ended the game with $35,734 while Jeopardy Champions Greg Jennings had 4,800 and Brad Rutter finished with $10,800.

    Watson’s $1 Million winnings will be split among two charities, World Vision and World Community Grid.
