Watson’s Jeopardy performance on Monday had me asking one question?
Is this computer just a pawn, an actor?
When the game started it jumped out into a massive lead but after the actual commercial break, not the 30 min IBM one that was the show, it seemed to stumble on questions.
The engineers must have downgraded its intelligence to make for a better game.
Which leads into a much larger discussion about the future of human interactions with computers. Whether if they should be allowed to showcase their hardcoded skills or should be adjusted at the needs of humans?
