Meet WATSON, the computer that competes in Jeopardy

Post by KnightINSTINCT » Sat Feb 05, 2011 1:32 am

A natural sounding voice; and a computer that can read and understand natural language, and think fast enough to compete against some of the smartest people to play a quiz game show. Yes, fellow Knight Geeks. K.I.T.T. is practically a reality now in 2011!

That's fascinating! I believe Glen Larson and Gene Roddenberry are two incredible visionaries. Their ideas, creations and hope for our future is becoming a reality! :good:
