Watson - IBM's Supercomputer

In 2007 IBM wanted to build something. They needed a challenge.
So they created Watson. A data analytics and natural language processing computer, with the goal to have Watson compete on Jeopardy, a perfect testing platform.

 Heres a video by IBM from the early stages, in developing Watson.

Yesterday Watson was on Jeopardy for the first time that was not a test, with one of the best Jeopardy of all times. Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Currently theres a tie between Rutter and Watson with $5000, and Jennings got $2000.

You can read more information about the event here!

Lets hope he win!
