IBM’s Watson on Jeopardy

In case you missed last night's debut of IBM's supercomputer Watson on Jeopardy, don't despair the normal game is spanning 3 nights - so you can watch it tonight and tomorrow.

Watson has been pretty impressive, but even more interesting is when he (or it) gets an answer wrong. It serves to highlight the complexity of the English language. Can a supercomputer replace a human? Not right now, but it makes a formidable foe in a trivia contest.

Check out Watson on Jeopardy's site and on television. You won't be disappointed.
