In case you’re like me and missed the much-hyped Watson appearance on Jeopardy last night, check out the video above which lets you see how it all went down. I believe tonight’s show features the Double and Final Jeopardy rounds, and Wednesday airs all the rounds together as a complete show. But don’t quote me on that.
Nevertheless, it’s pretty cool watching this computer at work, and I couldn’t help letting out a chuckle or two every time Watson messed up. It’s not that the computer erred, it’s just that it erred in such odd ways and with such conviction. It’s like the cat video of computers.
