Did anyone else see the NOVA about Watson that aired the other day? While it
was not especially technical, although seemingly pretty accurate for as far
as it went.

I found the emotions involved with the creators of Watson to be very
interesting. For example, they hired a comedian for a year to "host" test
Jeopardy shows, and he was making fun of Watson when he answered questions
really badly... and the programmers were really offended by that. Very
interesting dynamic.
