IBM’s supercomputer named “Watson,” is now starring in a Jeopardy! competition video on the world’s most famous video viewing portal. What is YouTube?
Reports suggest that he may be ready to battle the world’s most brilliant minds as early as this Fall, and we’re guessing his appearance will be one of the most highly watched in the show’s long history.
IBM has pit their supercomputers against humans before. Deep Blue has been known to play chess against some of the world’s greatest players, but playing a game with a finite number of moves and possibilities is entirely different than playing a trivia game with any number of questions from any number of categories. The stakes are much higher, and it’s much harder for even a supercomputer to wrap its wires around.
