Watson Runs Table at Jeopardy!

Yesterday, IBM supercomputer Watson was tied for first place at the initial round of Jeopardy!.

Today was a completely different scenario.

Watson schooled Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in Round 2, being much quicker on the draw with the correct answers. And while the computer missed the Final Jeopardy! question, Watson has a commanding lead.

Here's the breakdown:

Ken Jennings... $4,800.

Brad Rutter... $10,400.

Watson... $35,734.

Very impressive.

Congrats to IBM and Watson for their amazing achievement over the past few years. This is an incredible break through for technology andI anticipate great things from it. It is a shame how many folks seem to have a poor grasp on the complexity of the problem and consider this whole exercise "stupid". There will always be a troll for every subject.
