Watson is a DeepQA machine created by scientists at IBM. Last night it won a three-day Jeopardy challenge playing against the top two human Jeopardy! champions. Watson represents a leap forward in analytics and system design. The ability of a computer system to process natural language, use algorithms on a knowledge database and deliver a precise answer in only seconds is truly historic. It was mesmerizing to watch.

Thanks for the post, Tim. And good to see you back after all these years. :)

Yes, Watson was a fine performer. Reminded me of this cartoon (these intelligent agents that we create):

We may soon be calling this computer Doctor Watson now that it has been sent to medical school.
