The Smartest Computer Ever

Phone the neighbors, wake the kids! Four years of research at IBM culminates with Watson (an IBM Power 7 system) taking on two "Jeopordy!" champions Ken Jennings and Brad Ritter for the ultimate game show challenge.

The fun starts tomorrow (February 14) and continues through Wednesday.

Last week, Nova presented an hour-long background piece on how this all got started in the IBM labs, and how they got the "Jeopordy!" producers to go along.

Myself, having a couple of Power 7 systems here at work running IBM i/OS, am rooting for Watson...
