IBM versus humans: Lessons from "Jeopardy"

I watched the final episode of the contest between IBM's Watson, a computer system, and two great human players, on Jeopardy. Watson won. But, as a Wired commentator says, the real lessons from this match are how good, and how efficient, the human brain is. I was thinking the same thoughts, but he published first, and probably said it better.

Thanks for reading. Use your brain!

I saw bits and pieces about that Jeopardy - - - though I did not watch it.

I already knew from all the OTHER Jeopardy shows I HAVE watched - - - as well as from other experiences - - - that the human brain is QUITE a wonder.
