SPOILER ALERT: computer looms large in ‘Jeopardy!’
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The computer has brained his human competition in Day 2 of the Man vs. Machine competition on “Jeopardy!”
Veteran “Jeopardy!” champs Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter scored only five correct responses between them during the “Double Jeopardy!” round that aired Tuesday. They ended this first game of a two-game match with paltry earnings of $2,400 and $5,400, respectively.
Watson, their IBM supercomputer rival, emerged from the “Final Jeopardy!” round with $35,734.
The trio will return on Wednesday, when their second game is aired. The overall winner will collect $1 million.
The bouts were taped at the IBM research center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., last month.
