    Jeopardy

    That computer, Watson, gave a pretty impressive performance on Jeopardy.

    Yeah, I guess.

    You weren't impressed?

    Well . . .

    I suppose it's a display of some fairly sophisticated programming, but it is basically just querying a really big database.

    I guess I'll be more impressed when it can make sense of an answer to a question that no one asked.

    You mean anwers like "The Huffington Post," or "Dane Cook"?

    Well, yes, but actually . . .

    I was thinking of something more like, "a computer that can beat humans at a basic memorization game like Jeopardy."
