IBM Watson won a practice round of Jeopardy against Ken Jennings

Watson won the practice round of Jeopardy with $4,400, Jennings had $3,400 with Rutter bringing in $1,200.

* Watson cannot be psyched out, which is a problem for human players. Jennings and Rutter said that it’s a disadvantage to play a computer that has no emotions. Both Jeopardy champs said they were able to psych out rivals during their win streaks.

* I asked Rutter what it was like playing against Watson. “I’m impressed with Watson and its speed,” he said. “But after 10 or 15 questions Watson is just another good player. I have every confidence that we’ll do well.”
