Woohoo!  Watson wins!




Jeopardy isn't over however.  It is only a matter of time before a competing
team wants to play machine against machine, or even a three-way all machine
matchup.  Note that there are today about a couple dozen top chess computers
cheerfully pummeling each other, with the results being broadcast for all
the worlds people with far too much time on their hands to watch in
pointless fascination.  Those games are in some ways more interesting to
watch than human-human or human-machine games, because they tend to be so
technically clean and positional, so theoretical.


I can imagine there are already teams working to whoop Watson's butt.
