Jeopardy’s Man vs. Machine


Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings went against a machine in Jeopardy. The machine was an IBM mighty supercomputer and they called it Watson. The machine beat the to best Jeopardy players easily. The machine although had trouble with the section “Actors Who Direct”. Jennings during this section took this advantage and gained a lot of money. Jennings played a very good game and stayed somewhat close to the machine or “Watson”. In the end though Jennings could not stay above the machine. The total winnings of the machine was $77,147 while for Jennings it was $24,000 and for Rutter $21,600. In my opinion I would’ve guessed that machine would win. The technology these days cannot compare to people. Eventually machines with end up doing all the work for us.
