Watson On Jeopardy: "Pathetic Humans!" Followed By Evil Laughter

| Filed under: TV NewsTech Talk

Asimo Happy To Hear That World Domination Has Started

And so it begins.

Last night's showdown between the computer Watson and two returning human champions on Jeopardy turned brutal as the machine crushed its opponents!

We suppose it was embarrassed by its tie on the first night! Machines can be embarrassed, right?!

Team Human, what happened??

Well, here's what happened:

"Veteran human champs Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter scored only five correct responses between them during the Double Jeopardy! round. They ended this first game of a two-game match, which began on Monday's broadcast, with a mere $2,400 and $5,400 respectively. Watson emerged from the Final Jeopardy! round with whopping $35,734."

We read that like 4 or 5 times, but all we could gather from it was we need to prepare pretty fast for our new machine overlords.

LOLz!

Ken and Brad, it's okay bbs! We only relied on you to keep the biggest power struggle know to man in balance!

In all seriousness, good try guys!

The second game between the three will air tonight!

Thoughts??

    TRY TO REMEMBER THAT THE "COMPUTER" IS NOTHING BUT AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF STORED INFORMATION. IT ACCESSES THE INFORMATION THANKS TO COMPLEX ALGORITHMS THAT WERE DEVISED BY PEOPLE. "WATSON" IS NO SMARTER THAN WHAT IT IS MATERIALLY, A PILE OF HARDWARE, WHICH IS NO SMARTER THAN A BOX OF ROCKS.

    Watson also answered 'Toronto' to a question about US cities.

    It's just not fun watching a computer play.

    Let's see. The computer has access to gigabytes of carefully indexed information. It can parse the question, process the search (similar to the way Google does its searches), and issue a reply in nanoseconds. It's hardly a fair competition.
