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 Vickers, leads with $ 5,000. Poor Ken Jennings has only $ 2,000 to his name.
Double Jeopardy beings tomorrow, while Twitter (where I got that â€œangry nerdsâ€ barb) is the place to be during the show.
I can even pretend to be impartial—I’m pulling for Watson all the way here, and I, for one, welcome our new artificial intelligence overlords.
