Summary
Feb 14-16, IBM's "Watson" is going to be playing Jeopardy.

This could turn out to be a historical event, like the one that pitted IBM's "Big Blue" chess machine against World Champion Gary Kasparov in a series of annual matches. (The matches were best of 7, as I recall, with one match per day for a week. The machine won the third time out.)

This time, the battle will be with words, against the top Jeopardy players of all time. The machine might just win the first time out, or it might be that it will take a few tries. It should be fun, whatever transpires.
