Watson Comes Back with a Vengeance in Part II of Human-Robot Jeopardy! Challenge
Punny questions and determined human opponents may have ground IBM’s Watson supercomputer to a tie in the first part of its televised Jeopardy! match, but part two saw it regenerating like an angry T-1000 and blowing its former Jeopardy! champ competitors out of the water. Whereas the score ended at $5000-$5000-$2000 after part one, Watson won the match with a final score of $35,734 to its opponents’ $10,400 and $4,800. You can watch Watson’s whole remarkable performance below.
