I watched the most fascinating edition of "Nova" tonight! It was all about the IBM computer, "Watson", which has been programmed to play the game show "Jeopardy!" against humans:

Smartest Machine on Earth

I already have my DVR set up to record "Jeopardy!" on February 14-16, when Watson goes up against the two best human players of all time, one of whom is my hero Ken Jennings. The winner of the three-day match gets $1 million; if a human wins, 50 percent will go to charity, but if Watson wins, it will all go to charity.
