Machine beats humans in¬†practice¬†Jeopardy round. I say we pull the plug now before its too late…

From CNN

So who won the “Jeopardy!” practice run?! Watson won! Too bad, humans!

In a 15-question round, Watson fielded about half of the questions — and got none wrong. The computer netted $4,400, nearly quadrupling Rutter’s score and beating Jennings by $1,000.

Jennings and Rutter also sported a perfect track record on their answers. The final margin seemed to come down to who could buzz in the fastest.

The real competition will be a series of matches that will air on television on February 14, 15 and 16. First place wins a cool million, second place takes home $300,000 and third place nets $200,000.
