February 16, 2011, 10:24 AM — There's a lot of coverage today over IBM's Watson's drubbing of human opponents during the IBM Jeopardy! Challenge. Even the folks over at Next Media Animation, who offer up humorous animations on the news of the day, have weighed in on the issue.
Will Watson go on to destroy competitors on Survivor and American Idol? Probably not - more likely the machine will end up doing the work of humans, not against humans. Boring, enterprise IT work, most likely.
