Watson bests Jennings and Rutter

The computer beat the daylights out of the two former champions, and I'm not sure what it means. I did see when Watson got control of the button he was too fast for the human brain to finger reflex. Is Watson smarter than the humans? I don't know.

It does prove that computer technology continues to blaze a trail to I don't know where. I will not be around to see where it leads, but won't it be exciting.
