First Garry Kasparov, now Ken Jennings? Say it ain't so, Alex Trebek.
Everyone knows, or else should know, that chess engines are the best chess players on the planet. But now computers are the best Jeopardy players as well?
This week on US television, a special edition of Jeopardy attempts to answer that very question.
Before the first commercial of last-night's episode, it looked like Watson, the Jeopardy-playing computer, could do no wrong. Then the carbon-based life forms (humans) started to gain ground. At final curtain, the score was a dead draw. Two more nights will determine the overall victor.
All hail, Silicon Overlords !
Here's a PBS report on Watson, AI, and the Jeopardy challenge.
For additional information about the issues and challenges faced in creating Watson, here is a more in-depth video.
The amazing thing to me is not that Watson knows the answers but that he can understand the questions.
The funniest things were his very precise bets on the Daily Double: $6435 and $1246.
Yes, I'm beginning to anthropomorphize.
I been following this event somewhat. To me it's more interesting than comp vs. human in chess because of the thought processes it's trying to mimic.
I hope the comp wins because Watson is a pretty great name for a machine.
***Incomming*** prepare yourself for the intelligence singularity!
Fascinating isn't it. It makes me wonder just what will be possible in 10 years, 20 years, 100 years...
