The IBM Jeopardy! Challenge in a Nutshell

Ken Jennings, humanity’s last hope before the impending singularity/robot apocalypse, bowed down to our new Watson Overlord on the final question last night.

So yes, Watson won it all, crushing former Jeopardy champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in the final match last night, with $77,147 to Jennings’ $24,000 and Rutter’s $21,600, but he was still built by humans and he will never be as funny as Ken Jennings.  Unless someone programs him to make funny Simpsons references.
