IBM Watson Supercomputer Ready to Take on Jeopardy Champs

 |  |  |  |  |  December 15, 2010


Remember Deep Blue? It was the supercomputer that tried to take on Garry Kasparov in a chess championship and managed to win back in 1997. Now IBM is back with its Watson computer, who’s now ready to take on some real Jeopardy champs.

Kasparov demanded a rematch, but IBM refused and dismantled Deep Blue, *ahem* because it’s technology obviously dangerous to the survival of the human race (WTF?). Watson was made for Jeopardy. Watson will face two of Jeopardy’s most successful players, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, in three episodes that will be broadcast February 14th to 16th, 2011.
