Watson vs. The Champs: Day 1

Thanks to a good soul called "Rashad8821", we have the video, in two parts.


I wish the program skipped the ad-like stuff at the beginning of the first segment. But the backgrounder on Watson's 'dumb' mistakes in the second segment is quite charming.

    Abi: the first part seems to have been mislinked. An episode of three's company has been embedded. Could you please correct that.

    @Arun: I too noticed it immediately after I posted it, and corrected it right away. It's working for me now.

    Reload the page, and it should work for you too.

    Abi do you know if Watson is optimised to play this game or is it optimised to understand natural language?
