    Go Watson!
    Out of curiosity, is there a way to watch this live on the internet?

    15TB with 2800 computer network processing capability? So 2800 NWL in IBM terms.


    And it still can't walk, eat, poo, or drink or make beer!!!! Piece of shit.

    Thanks for posting the updates because in UK I find it hard to follow otherwise. Nice to see Watson doing well. For the benefits to WCG I really hope he/it wins.

    I just want to see Ken Jennings beat that thing with a bat and proclaim himself to be the superior being. All out rage, that would be good TV.

    Taking out the screen would be good tv, but Watson is an offsite cluster. It could get angry and call itself skynet when it seeks revenge :p

    If you watched Conan tonight you got your wish.

    They had a Watson "impersonator" on and after sucking up to Conan Andy Richter beat the monitor with a bat. Good times. :toast:

    Ya know my buddy asked me "How much longer before machines start giving us orders" and I told him "I don't know because all I'll hear is it begging for its life as I pull the F#@king power cord."

    This damn Watson gives a who new meaning to "Rage against the machine"
