NEW YORK – The game show "Jeopardy!" will pit man versus machine this winter in a competition that will show how successful scientists are in creating a computer that can mimic human intelligence.
Two of the venerable game show's most successful champions — Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter — will play two games against "Watson," a computer program developed by IBM's artificial intelligence team. The matches will be spread over three days that will air Feb. 14-16, the game show said on Tuesday.
The "Jeopardy!" answer-and-question format is a different kind of challenge. It often requires contestants to deal with subtleties, puns and riddles and come up with answers fast.
At 500 gigahertz, this barn-burning technology blazes past current operating speeds. The chip in your cellphone, for instance, operates at a paltry 2 gigahertz. "Right now there's no market than being much faster than that," Ahlgren says. Even at room temperature, he says, the new chip's speed of 350 gigahertz still blows others out of the water.
Researchers at Brown University have succeeded in creating the first wireless, implantable, rechargeable, long-term brain-computer interface. The wireless BCIs have been implanted in pigs and monkeys for over 13 months without issue, and human subjects are next.
