    По прогнозу Forrester Research, интеллектуальные помощники скоро перестанут
    быть редкостью и перейдут в область массового применения.

    Многие слышали о суперкомпьютере IBM Watson, беспилотных машинах Google и
    задавали самые разные вопросы Siri, но уже в этом году подобные разработки
    начнут использоваться шире, станут проще и полезнее в повседневной жизни.
    Кнопки и сенсоры уйдут в прошлое: даже бытовые приборы научатся запоминать
    наши привычки, распознавать голос, жесты, мимику и движения глаз.

    Ниже отрывок американской телевикторины Jeopardy (аналог «Своей игры»), в
    которой облачный суперкомпьютер от IBM, способный распознавать голосовые
    запросы, различая метафоры и юмор, обыгрывает двух многократных чемпионов.
    Watson в этот момент не подключён к интернету, но в его память загружена
    база данных с информацией из множества областей знаний.

    Ken caught up to Watson pretty quickly..which to me is still a display of
    how far ahead the human mind is. 

  3. doodelay says:

    Wow they’re actually answering faster that a computer that can read a
    million books per second and that has memorized wikipedia verbatim. Very
    impressive humans indeed :)

  4. Satchel Hogan says:

    IBM should have given WATSON HAL9000’s voice.

    5 years later Watson went back in time and killed Ken and Brad.

  7. Andrew Goodrick says:

    “Destroys” is a bit of an exaggeration, don’t you think?
    Honestly I think someone just wanted to use the phrase “Watson destroys
    humans” somewhere for the sake of sensationalist BS

    Watson: “Lets finish; chicks dig me”.

  10. Davis Warden says:

    Watson, open the pod bay doors.

  11. Cody Bostrom says:

    He didn’t destroy the humans

  12. Woodchuck12 says:

    rigged i say! nah not really

  13. Figus Heimunschplit says:

    The hell is going on with the camera???

  14. Jun K Hirayama says:

    Watson is selecting possible right answer through complex layer of logic.
    But only still finding them from the dictionary.
    He isn’t imagining and answering.
    He can not answer a question like “how did you felt like when you listen to
    Bjork for the first time?”.


  15. Timothy Martin says:

    Great, billions in dollars and research to create another way to put others
    out of work. Medical interpretation and consultancy is fine, but why do we
    not trust to humans to do this as we have always done? Here is my question
    for Watson: how do we sort out the mess(es) the Middle East has come to be
    known for? If Watson can answer this correctly, I will sing its praises…

    irobot is soon

    Darpa Atlas, CERN Supercomputer AI

  17. Alorand says:

    Looks like Ken knew everything, but got beat to the buzzer most of the time.

    Also the #2 and #3 answers from watson seem very weird. 

  18. ginger says:

    Brad looked like the dumbest guy out there but is probably smarter than 99%
    of the population … :)

  19. R.P. Mayhem says:

    Remember a couple years ago when Watson (the computer, not the fictional
    companion to Sherlock Holmes) played Jeopardy? Here’s the video.

  20. Qopel says:

    Imagine if Watson mined BitCoin!

  21. Radosław Buńczuk says:

    Yes but, can you play the GTA V on this?

  22. modvs1 says:

    Watson has an extremely unfair advantage due to the fact that none of its
    computational (neurological) load has to do with looking after autonomic,
    proprioceptive, vestibular systems and (additional/peripheral)
    sensory-motor coordination and feedback. I bet you if you could add these
    extra- typically biological- encumbrances to its computational
    responsibilities it would be as responsive as a wet sponge.

  23. Alzie Tolbert says:

    Isn’t Linux (the operating system OS that most supercomputers run on)
    amazing! Linux is what im also running on my laptop (the one in my profile
    pic with the windows logo that I need to change)

  24. Gamered 1337 says:

    I really wish I’d been there.

  25. Naomi Nekomimi says:

    Can I marry Watson.
