Elementary, my dear Watson

We humans have finally found a match for our wits. Actually, we have been surpassed by IBM’s Watson. Not only does the whiz kid computer interpret questions, but ‘he’ also learns and adjusts ‘his’ responses accordingly. ‘He’ proved this by outperforming against Jeopardy’s two all-time champions in three consecutive airings of the show.

This is beyond sci-fi. Mind-boggling.
