We dont watch tv anymore when we are home.
We get all news via the internet and kindle or ipad

My brother in law works for IBM. IBM is Watson's creator, this has been over a 4 year project. IBM came up with the project... remember how their computer Deep Blue beat the Chess Champ Gary Kasparov. It has been fun for us to watch a computer learn the nuances of language and the irony in the topics of jeopardy.

Watson totally missed out how we talk about decades as the 20's or 30's and not 1920.

He missed an answer even giving the same answer as a contestant.

Tonight is the final round.
