    Yeah, making sure not to miss this today. The questions are going to be so high-end smart, I'll be lucky to answer four right all week!

    I'll take, "You're all fucked" for $200, Alex.

    PBS did a nice lead-up documentary looking at the process of refining Watson.

    Yes, but how would Birdscribe do?

    Looking forward to it as well.

    I mean, the amount of time it takes a machine to buzz is has to be significantly less than it takes a human to do so, right?

    Watson's cleaning up early. I'm sure everyone knows the answers, so he's just able to ring in quicker.

    Am I understanding this wrong, or does Watson get multiple-choice answers?

    He doesn't get multiple choice. He has to search his databases for the answer. The three things shown are his top 3 guesses and his confidence level on them.

    Watson had a brutal second half of the opening round. He's tied at $5,000 with Brad. Ken is at $2,000.
