"I for one, welcome our new computer overlords," defeated Jeopardy contestant Ken Jennings wrote below his final answer as the game show's 3-day supercomputer challenge wrapped up. IBM's Watson finished way ahead with $77,147 while Jennings and Brad Rutter—the two most successful human contestants in Jeopardy history—finished with $24,000 and $21,600, reports Reuters.
Host Alex Trebek said he had learned three things from the supercomputer challenge. "One, Watson knows a lot of stuff and can really dominate a match. Two, Watson is capable of some weird wagers. The third thing I learned is that Toronto is now a US city," he said, referring to Watson's major error the previous day. IBM, which is donating all of Watson's winnings to charity, plans to adapt the technology for use in medical diagnostics.
