Jeopardy! The IBM Challenge

"Watson is a smarter system - an efficient analytical engine that pulls many sources of data together in real-time, discovers an insight, and deciphers a degree of confidence. Could a business operate like this? How about a city?" ~IBMWatson

My family likes Jeopardy... we watch it together fairly regularly. My family is also somewhat tech-lovers - though my dad more than the rest of us. You can imagine therefore the excitement that was generated by  Jeopardy! The IBM Challenge - the first ever man vs machine Jeopardy competition.

All I can say is ... WOW!!! Can't wait to see tomorrow's show.

If you want to know more about Watson click here.

And because I'm still super-excited about it:

And a link to IBM's YouTube Channel where there are many vids about Watson and how it was developed.
