Competition- Man vs. machine (Jeopardy’s two greatest champions versus IBM’s artificial intelligence computer system)

On February 11, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, two of the most celebrated players in the television program’s history, went against an IBM machine, Watson, in Jeopardy. This machine is able to understand natural language. It is able to take words and match them up to find answers to question, since there was  complications of finding complex word on the machine, but could only play if the game was fair. The machine ended up beating the two men in the game. I think it shows how far we’ve gone into technology and that we are expanding and getting more advanced as time goes on. It could possibly mean that human may need more technology to learn because, obviously, it’s “smarter” than man-kind.
