View Full Version : TV: Jeopardy
02-14-2011, 08:04 PM
Today is the beginning of a three day tournament between Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and IBM's "Watson". So far Brad and Watson have tied for first place, but Ken's game usually comes together in double jeopardy. Will a human win this tournament? My bets are on Ken, though both are like a modern day John Henry.

Watson i'm thinking will win...though it got 2 questions wrong.....anything can happen in this day and age
02-14-2011, 08:08 PM
Watson got way more than two wrong.
02-14-2011, 08:11 PM
did it? i just knew of 2 ?s,oh well...Ken will lull them into a false sence of security then probably beat them...but i think watson might get it.besides its not like the 2 guys will win anything.....will they?
02-14-2011, 08:12 PM
They win money and the right to say they are smarter than IBM?
02-14-2011, 08:15 PM
bragging rights basiclly.nothin says that ur smarter then a cpu.
02-14-2011, 08:22 PM
Ah, bragging rights...what more do you need. :D
02-14-2011, 08:25 PM
indeed....its like "hey ur the guy that beat a cpu on tv!"
02-15-2011, 01:24 PM
Double jeopardy is today, Ken will pull it together in this round, I am sure. ~nods~
02-15-2011, 01:30 PM

02-15-2011, 08:07 PM

02-15-2011, 08:13 PM

02-15-2011, 08:23 PM
Watson got final jeopardy wrong, but its ahead.
02-15-2011, 08:28 PM
That reminds me of this.
02-15-2011, 08:36 PM
It seems appropriate indeed. Stupid Watson. >.>
02-15-2011, 08:44 PM
so watson is winning...what about the guys?
02-15-2011, 08:45 PM
Ken got final jeopardy right, but I think the other one is still ahead of him.
02-15-2011, 08:47 PM
Ken is supposed 2 ne this all knowing guy and he cant even beat a cpu?!....man thats messed up,besides does anybody remember that ken's 74 whatever streak ended cause he got beat.....by a woman?
02-16-2011, 08:35 AM
It's like Deep Blue 2 all over again. >.>
02-16-2011, 08:36 AM
Deep Blue 2?
02-16-2011, 08:38 AM
2 was the unbeaten one I believe
Edit: I guess it was Deep Thought II And Deeper Blue.
02-16-2011, 08:40 AM
That was another IBM tournament? I see. Watson isn't infallible though, it's made mistakes.
02-16-2011, 08:42 AM
Well Deep Blue fell into the same trap twice.
02-16-2011, 06:08 PM
I missed the final episode,who won today anyone know?
02-16-2011, 07:15 PM
It's not on here for 15 more minutes.
02-16-2011, 08:09 PM
so nobody knows then if man was better then a cpu,or does man's own invention put us 2 school?
02-16-2011, 08:34 PM
Ken's comment in his final jeopardy guess after getting final jeopardy right: "I for one welcome our new computer overlords". Watson won. =/
02-16-2011, 08:37 PM
Figures....even Jeporady's ultimate champs,r lowered down 2 mere mortals by man's own invention....oh well.....Next time,ken vs speak and spell.....sry couldnt help it.
