RipTen: "The machines are taking over . . . albeit slowly. First chess and now Jeopardy. How does a computer come up with answers to pop culture trivia questions? Beats me – but it’s just as scary as it is impressive."
I'm sorry, I can't do that Dave . . .
If the super computer has access to google then there is the answer
I do work at IBM and I have been following the evolution of this project since day one. It is more complicated then having access to Google. It is more the way the algorithms to parse the questions are integrated within the Analytical processes. Check the second video from this link: http://www.engadget.com/201... Impressive nonetheless =:)
I can do it!!!!! I can do it all night longT!!!!
"It's boring to have the same guy win. I'm actively rooting against myself." - Ken Jennings Dude loves himself. Can't blame him for being that awesome though.
Yeah.64 day won with 2 million in his account.I would hate to see his ego now
And who made that super computer? That's right.
Look who made Skynet and see how that turned out....
This is actually pretty scary.
And so it begins..... La li lu le lo
This articles relation to gaming is immense.
But Can that Super Computer run Crysis? Hell NO! So who cares. Wake me up when this article reads "Ken Jennings gets stomped in Jeopardy by Super Computer while Super Computer was running Crysis on an Eyefinity set-up being played by Alex Trebek. that would be gaming news unlike this NON GAMING useless trivia.
I see your point on how this article doesn't have to do with anything game related; But Watson (the super computer) is a million dollar machine, so i'm pretty sure it can run Crysis on ultra high max settings without breaking a sweat.
Actually it's way more than a Million dollars because Watson has to run on a special IBM server and that 1 special server cost $1 Million dollars all by itself. So far that's the only info I can get on the darn thing. If you got a link to Watson's system specifications I would appreciate it. All jokes aside, Watson is pretty darn impressive.
