What is a supercomputer for $200, Alex?
It’s man vs. machine as an IBM computer takes on two human champions on Jeopardy! on Monday. The IBM supercomputer, named “Watson,” is to play two games of Jeopardy! over the next three days against Ken Jennings, who holds the show record of 74 straight wins, and Brad Rutter, winner of US$3.25 million in prize money.
If Watson wins, IBM plans to donate 100% of its winnings to charity. Jennings (L) and Rutter (R) plan to give 50% of their prize money to charity. Boo, humans!
