I heard via the Scott Van Pelt Show that Watson crashed several times during the taping of the first episode--so many times, in fact, that it took 4 hours to complete the round. Wow. Not impressed. Matt is our resident Jeopardy! expert. But I imagine that the average human contestant could not delay the game for this amount of time.
I can only imagine the fatigue that comes with four hours of waiting for Watson to reboot. This could be a decisive advantage to the computer. Thoughts?
