'Jeopardy' invites supercomputer Watson to destroy all humans
They'll get their chance Monday, when "Jeopardy" champs Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter face off against Watson, the world's most advanced question-answering system, built by IBM.
Even "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek told us he feels a little threatened by this new robot genius. "When I met the IBM guys I said, 'Guys, I think it’s only five years away before you can come up with a computer who can host 'Jeopardy.' "
We'll bet he'd be extra impressed if that computer system could rock a classic Trebek mustache.
