Do you remember Deep Blue, the chess-playing computer built by IBM that defeated the world champion of chess?

It might happen again tonight.

Tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday, IBM will be competing on the popular quiz-show Jeopardy! with a new supercomputer named Watson.  This machine is capable of interpreting Jeopardy's natural-language questions and providing correct responses within a few seconds.  The games will be airing live (AFAIK), where Watson will compete against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter for a $1,000,000 prize.

The machine took over $10,000,000 to build and contains 2880 processor cores and 16 terabytes of RAM.  If Watson defeats the human contestants, it will mark an incredible milestone in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

(Lots) more info: 1 hour Nova episode on Watson

I love how the scientists give HAL as an example of what they would like to attain.

It's pretty cool inasmuch as it shows us what amazing creations we are, but if we take it further then may God have mercy on us for believing we have the capability or the right.

Not entirely sure; my local TV listings have Jeopardy! at 00:30GMT, but I can't say for sure that it will be on everywhere at that time (they could do some kind of delayed broadcast tomfoolery).  Check your local listings!

Thank you Sent, most fascinating. Smiley

Hmm, seems to me as if it was "missing" the necessary info for certain questions. If those missing parts are added, its answers would be different and perhaps even correct. Smiley
