Wednesday night was the final round in the “Jeopardy!” Man v. Machine tournament. The winner: Watson, the supercomputer created by IBM. Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter came in second and third, taking home $300,000 and $200,000 respectively. Watson ended up with a cool million which IBM says it will donate entirely to charity.
- While Jennings and Rutter celebrated with their families, Watson spent five hours on the phone with a guy in India.
- I’m sure Watson will be doing the talk show circuit… Maybe he’ll be able to figure out what the girls on “The View” talking over each other, are actually talking about!
