Submission + - AI does well on Jeopardy (i-programmer.info)

mikejuk writes: Watson, IBM's latest intelligent machine, crushes human opposition in a practice round of Jeopardy. Is this the end of human dominance of the planet? Fortunately for use it still doesn't have a sense of humour so it not only gets quirky questions wrong it doesn't laugh when it does. Watson won convincingly in the first practice round, earning $4,400, while Ken Jennings trailed with $3,400. Brad Rutter, who has earned a cumulative $3.3 million on the show, came in last.
Watson will appear on the real show on the 14th, 15th and 16th of February.
