We're doomed.

Here's a preview of the IBM super computer vs. humans on Jeopardy - and it's destroying the competition!

The sad part is that these aren't just any "humans." The super computer is competing against two of Jeopardy's smartest contestants.

Yikes. Scary stuff.

    Progress is exciting, not scary.



  2. 2

    I would hardly call that DESTROYING them. From the description, I thought it would be closer to a shutout. Ken and Brad were getting quite a few questions!



  3. 3

    This is the effing dumbest thing I've ever seen. What the hell is the point?
    This is like me winning a spelling bee with the use of a dictionary.

    it has a built in google. lol. well i think answers were built in inside it, and notice how at the end of the category, the "super-computer" wont answer since it cant choose another category. were closer to the "creation of human like android, looking bullshit" era. awesome

    Re: Ryan Lacle – The point, my short-sighted friend, is that IBM has managed to build a supercomputer that can process and understand natural language, including slang, puns and double-entendres, and respond to questions in English at the same or faster speed than humans with the best memory recall. That is impressive and a major leap forward in artificial intelligence and neural networks.

    Re: Deadwing – Exactly, not to mention that even when it did not buzz in first, it still always had the right answer. Impressive technological breakthrough!



  7. 7

    It's not that the computer knew the questions while the contestants did not,it was just faster at the buzzer.you can clearly see the contestant trying to push his buzzer for every question immediately after the question was asked,he just was not faster than the computer.

    I don't really think that's scary, and normally I'm one who does get frightened by extreme technologies…but to me I mean, it's just a database. Humans input the information, it's just an automated information system. It's just a quicker way of accessing it, but the medium itself hasn't really changed. It's no different than getting info from google.



  9. 9

    and the computer does not 'know' questions. it is a machine that had information implanted into it. the knowledge is from human discovery.



  10. 10

    really? this is scary? lol.



  11. 11

    What do you mean "we're doomed"??? You were never in the running, moron…

    I can't believe that Jeopardy would have the nerve to not only feature a complany (IBM) that willingly particpated in the Nazi Regime, but name it 'Watson' after the very man that made millions of dollars from Nazi Germany with his punch card system that he 'rented' to Hitler in order to count all Jews. I am disgusted and offended and it makes me sick to my stomach that America is not aware of IBM's brutal history and continues to support a company that aided in the extermination of over 6 million European people.



  13. 13

    So… It can use google? GTFO!



  14. 14

    That's pretty awesome.

    Re: Ryan Lacle – Read my mind. Or a Ferrari at the Kentucky Derby.

    Re: Cattac – Just like nuclear weapons. Progress is AWESOME, yay!



  17. 17

    Re: jecho – Oh, dear. As usual, it's only the Jews that matter. The other 50 million WW2 deaths are insignificant.



  18. 18

    I honestly wouldn't call this destroying at all. The other contestants definitely held their ground, which is honestly impressive, seeing as they're against an IBM computer.



  19. 19

    I notice that when the 3rd question was answered the camera zoomed in on the hands of the contestants. I believe Jerry hit the buzzer as fast as the computer but the computer was the one that was able to answer.

    IDK…looks kinda shady.

    BTW..yay for artificial intelligence but I hope kids are still given the proper education and coerced to think for themselves and not always rely on a computer to regurgitate the answer

    Ummm… it's a compter. What is so amazing about this? I can do the same thing with my ipod omg.

    Re: maxie pad – Dear Maxie Pad. I said over 6 million Europeans. No problem, I get that you didn't read the entire thing.

    Where was Alex Trebek? That's my only question. The fact that a computer can answer a question faster than a human isn't interesting to me at all. I don't care if it can understand language - who's to say that there wasn't a human typing the question into it while the host was reading it? Creating super-computers is scary to me, not impressive. It's just one more step closer to getting rid of the human race and replacing them with super-computers. It should scare the shit out of everyone here!
