Supercomputer Takes on ‘Jeopardy!’ Champions [VIDEO]
This week on “Jeopardy!”, a supercomputer named Watson is competing against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, the two most storied players in the history of the game show.
Watson is able to respond in a human voice to Alex Trebek’s answers, and the supercomputer is able to do so quickly enough to often beat the two human “Jeopardy!” legends to the buzzer.
After the first day of the competition Watson was tied with Rutter for the lead. The third episode of this three-day event will air tonight at 7:00 pm on WNEM-TV5.
