IBM's Watson kicks ass at Jeopardy!

itjungle's story

Wow, that thing apparently can't actually listen/recognize speech, but has to get the questions written down for input. But still it's amazing how far AI has gone. Computers that can I understand human language would make life so much easier... and scary at the same time>< (ever seen Matrix?).

Being a long time GNU/Linux user, obviously I've used emacs's "doctor"... It doesn't look anything like Watson:

I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems. Each time
you are finished talking, type RET twice.

I don't have a girlfriend

Why do you say you do not have a girlfriend?

Because I don't.

Is it because you do not that you came to me?

Yes, it is.

Earlier you said you do not?


Can you elaborate on that?


Why not?


Does it bother you that I ask you that?


Are you annoyed that I ask that?

ok, I guess yes...

Maybe your plans have something to do with this.

I don't think so...

Is it because of your life that you say you do not think so?
