IBM supercomputer to be a Jeopardy contestant in February

Watch your back, Ken Jennings: a supercomputer is gunning for your crown as the greatest Jeopardy player ever. And it'll have its chance in February. (It's about time, too.)

Watson, an IBM supercomputer, is set to go up against the two greatest Jeopardy players ever, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, on February 14, 15 and 16. Designed to be able to understand and answer questions using advanced artificial intelligence, it could be a gamechanger if it puts the humans to shame. It could ruin all trivia games, just like Deep Blue ruined chess!
