Go Away, Jeopardy Watson!

Have you tuned in to Jeopardy this week? If so, you saw Watson on Jeopardy.   IBM’s creation against two of the best Jeopardy competitors ever: Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.

In theory, it sounds interesting.  Can a computer really compete against humans in a game of Jeopardy?

But, it didn’t stay interesting for long.

The final score for tonight was Ken $4,800, Brad $10,400, and Watson $35,734.  This is only part one of the competition. These totals will be added into their scores from tomorrow to declare a winner.

But, Watson was so far ahead that it didn’t make for much of an interesting game. Interesting technology, sure, but not an interesting game of Jeopardy.

Have you seen Watson on Jeopardy? What do you think?
