Via regular reader feeblemind comes this clip of the IBM-designed Watson on Jeopardy.
It’s a very impressive display of computer programming from the short video available. Call it artificial artificial intelligence at this point. But the future is looming in this display of computer programming prowess.
(Actually, dystopian views of AI are actually pretty dominant in pop culture. Mike from The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is kind of exceptional these days. But then, Heinlein thought technology was good. Far too many Luddites these days think it’s bad – except for their iPhones, of course.)
Anyway, watch Watson kicking some serious butt in the video.
