IBM who built deep blue, the computer that beat world chess champ gary kasparov have built a new machine called Watson. It can understand natural language and speak. On valentines day it took on 2 contestants in Jeopardy on US Tv, answering the questions in real time at the same moment as the human contestants heard them.

It can perform 80 trillion calculations a second.

the show starts at about 6mins 30 but the preceding bit is quite interesting.

the plan is to develop it to use as an assitstant to surgeons and doctors.

.....oh and no it has no idea who hardy26 is either. ... r_embedded
The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.
