Oh, man. This is some I, Robot shit right here!!

According to reports, an IBM has teamed up with the show Jeopardy! to see if their supercomputer, called Watson, can beat two of the best contestants the game has ever seen!

In three episodes, scheduled to air February 14th-16th of 2011, Watson will compete against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.

If the computer wins, all of its earnings will go to charity. If either of the actual people do, they will donate half of their prize.

According to IBM:

"The game's clues involve analyzing subtle meaning, irony, riddles, and other complexities in which humans excel and computers traditionally do not."

This is so crazy! Something about a computer being possibly this smart makes us very uncomfortable!

Regardless, it's still going to be SUPER inneresting to see what happens!

We'll DEFINITELY be tuning in!

Thoughts??
