We told you about the upcoming Jeopardy! match that would pit man against machine, using Jeopardy all-stars Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter to compete against an IBM computer named “Watson.” LOL.

Well, turns out that machines may actually take over the world!

Watson beat Jennings and Rutter, winning a grand total of $1 million, which IBM donated to charity. How cool is that??

Jennings wrote about the defeat for Slate, and said of his worthy adversary, “Indeed, playing against Watson turned out to be a lot like any other Jeopardy! game, though out of the corner of my eye I could see that the middle player had a plasma screen for a face.”

So, if robots can replace actual players, does this mean that our eco-man Alex Trebek is in trouble?? We’ll take, Trebek for $500 please!
