“IBM’s Watson supercomputer trounced its human competitors in the conclusion of the first round of its Jeopardy challenge.
Watson ended the night with $35,754, while former human Jeopardy champs Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings scored $10,000 and $4,800 respectively.”
See Watson in action from about 4:50 in this video.
But Watson doesn’t always get it right, “in Final Jeopardy…the category of U.S. Cities, the competitors were given a clue about a city whose largest airport is named for a World War II hero, and its second largest is named for a World War II battle. Watson ended up guessing Toronto.”
