Jeopardy Super Computer: Watson Vs. Ken Jennings Vs. Brad Rutter

Update/Results: Watson won. After two full games of Jeopardy! spread over three nights, the final scores were Watson: $77,147, Jennings: $24,000, Rutter: $21,600.

But obviously that’s not the overall point and Watson’s ability, without a doubt, is impressive. Click here for more.

IBM and Jeopardy teamed up to have the two greatest Jeopardy contestants compete against a super computer named Watson. This is a test-match (which is made obvious by the absence of the great George Alexander Trebek). The real episodes will air February 14th-16th, 2011.
