KenJen on Watson

Ken Jennings offers his thoughts on losing the Jeopardy exhibition to IBM's "Watson" supercomputer (KenJen hung-in in the second game, although he and Brad Rutter got crushed in the first game).

So, Paul: as the one among the Prawfs group to have appeared on Jeopardy, what did you think of Watson and the whole man-v.-machine game?

Howard, I didn't get to watch as much of it as I ought to have; I suspect many former Jeopardy contestants don't watch as much once they've been on. Watson was pretty solid, but it's the buzzer time that really makes a difference.
