Watson Wins Jeopardy!


Last night in the final round of man v. machine on JeopardyIBM’s supercomputer Watson wasted little time in beating its human counterparts on the show, which was the third and final espisode that was filmed on the Yorktown Heights, NY campus of the research facility where Watson lives.  In the end, Watson earned a total of $77,147 while human contestants Ken Jennings won $24,000 and  Brad Rutter won $21,600.

So what’s next for Watson?

There’s a great NYConvergence article here.
