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!
