What Is Watson? [VIDEO]
As some of you may know, I am a huge fan of game shows. My favorite has always been "Family Feud," but I also enjoy "Millionaire," "Wheel Of Fortune," and "Jeopardy!" A few months ago, I stumbled across a very interesting story about IBM's incredible new supercomputer. "Watson," as it's called, will be a contestant on "Jeopardy!" playing against champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.
IBM built a computer that could win at Chess back in the late 1990s. They now want to take on "Jeopardy!" Check out the video of the trial run of "Watson" against the champs, and look for the man vs. machine competition on the prime time quiz show airing tonight, February 14th, and tomorrow, February 15th, at 7pm on WNEM-TV 5!
