IBM’s AI ‘Watson’ Beats Humans in Jeopardy [Video]

Have we reached the point of singularity yet? No, we have not. IBM’s Watson is a great piece of technology as far as an AI could go, but after all this is just loading questions to match the provided answers in the style of Jeopardy. A semantic version of a reverse search engine to query knowledge. I don’t mean to talk it down either, because in the end, a machine has defeated humans in something they were very good at. What do you think? Another IBM Deep Blue versus Garry Kasparov, or does it mean more than that?
