IBM’s Watson Takes On Humans At Jeopardy – Exciting Yet Somewhat Scary!

by Tapan 'Ananta' Garg on February 13, 2011

I love technology, as I am sure most of you do too. I’m excited that in about 12 hours, IBM’s “supercomputer” (actually it consists of 90 servers) Watson, will take on two of the worlds best players of the very popular game show “Jeopardy”.

The research around the “Watson” project potentially can have a huge impact on Business Analytics and other applications of Information Technology. But I have to be honest – This video scared me. Are we coming closer to all the Sci-Fi horror stories where humans are competing for relevance against our own inventions. And closer to home – How long before a computer can do a CIO’s job?
