I tried to warn you!

Lets start by refreshing your memory on a past episode of chachi says:

This is entitled when roombas attack…..

See i warned you that the robot uprising is coming.

IBM has made that come even closer.

as shown here on their press website.

{ARMONK, N.Y. & CULVER CITY, Calif. – 14 Dec 2010: IBM (NYSE: IBM) and America’s Favorite Quiz show® Jeopardy! today announced that an IBM computing system named “Watson” will compete on Jeopardy! against the show’s two most successful and celebrated contestants — Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.

The first-ever man vs. machine Jeopardy! competition will air on February 14, 15 and 16, 2011, with two matches being played over three consecutive days.}

Why is this a big deal?

Well if you have never seen Jeopardy (which means you are living in a cave and are not reading this.) You know they focus a lot on puns, word play and riddles. Human nuances that normally are difficult to program for.

Ibm however has cracked that code. They believe that this computer can translate the clue, find an answer, and buzz in before the humans.

But Jeopardy and ibm decided to make this as hard as possible by enlisting Jennings and Rutter, the grandest Champions of All Time on Jeopardy.

I myself am extremely excited for this challenge this means a lot in the advances of technology.

Chachi Says: The robots will uprise, while i’m excited im also scared. i’ll be over here getting my emp’s charged and ready to go.
