    In reality, Watson did not win anything. The program cheated because it had an online database of trivia at its disposition that was given to it by its programmers. Human brains are not connected to databases. Saying that Watson won is like saying that a car won a race against a human being. Big deal. I would have been much more impressed if Watson had learned to speak and understand English on its own. But that would have been too much to ask of IBM's researchers.

 

 

    In a way, the guy is right. But, we hope they make a better Watson is out soon, and in a less expensive way, I myself want one to study English...

    The level of accuracy was not small potatoes, I must admit.
