Watson, IBM’s next-gen Supercomputer to appear on Jeopardy

IBM’s next supercomputer, named Watson after their founder, Thomas J Watson, is the next step in attempting to have computers come closer to the human’s mind ability to reason and understand meaning(s) in words.

Watson is advanced enough that it is scheduled to appear on Jeopardy as early as this Fall.

A successful Watson could mean a future 2nd place for Google should someone else (IBM?) implement a search engine based on its technology.

Watch the IBM-produced video for some more insight, although it focuses on how it might perform on Jeopardy.

    Please do not imply that google is smart. If you ask it who won world war 2, the first thing it does is try to sell you insurance and dvds of world war 1, 2, vietnam, and link you to twitter accounts and blogs that happen to mention in articles that are days apart, the words world and war and the number 2. Its become a pitiful excuse for anything but a data regurgitating salesman.
