Recently, the game show Jeopardy started showing a 3-day, 2 game exabition match between Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and IBM's lattest computer wonder, WATSON, a computer that can "think" out answers to questions on the game show.
This computer was created over 4 years time, and is the size of old 1940's super computers (Imagine the computing power comparison. The computer you play STO on is stronger then those 40's SUPER computers! How much stronger is WATSON? )
Here is a YouTube video of part of Day 1's competition.
