Watson Sucks

Hooray for Watson, the stupid computer who won in jeapordy. Is this really news? What human doesn’t already ask every fathomable question they have to The Google? We should throw Watson into a pool, let’s see how smart this dumb computer is then. Another thing that annoys me about this whole thing is that there were two of the best human jeopardy players going against Watson, the humans ended up splitting their score, leaving the computer a better chance to succeed. Brad Rutter should have laid down and allowed Ken Jennings to collect all the human points so we could have put the smackdown on Watson. By the way, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter aren’t exactly successful in anything in life other than Jeopardy, Brad is an unemployed actor and Ken Jennings doesn’t do anything other than read comic books. Great job IBM, you’ve made a computer that can beat two human beings who’s only claim to fame is that they have computer-like memory and no real application in life.

Let’s go IBM, please go back to the drawing board and invent something useful, like a computer who can win Wheel of Fortune.

  1. Great post. I watched the second show, and felt a little bit dumber for doing so.I disagree with one thing you wrote though. If I had won as many times as Brad or Ken, I’d be just as unemployed as they are, if not more unemployed.


  2. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
