Yup, thats right – RPI grads helped build the computer database – Watson – that’s now on Jeopardy. The computer that tramples Ken Jennings and Jeopardy champions. Think you could take Watson on?
Several members from the IBM team that designed the program knowledge base graduated from RPI – and the RPI campus is actually having some events over the next few days to let students explore and get to know Watson and what it does and what it could be capable of.
Tune in at 7:30 tonight on ABC for the last night of the battle with the supercomputer, and see what happens!
