The greatest Jeopardy! champions of all time are returning to the TV screen, and this time they're not playing just for money — they're playing for all of humanity.


When we hear language, we bring so much context to interpreting the question that we come up with sensible and reasonable answers. The computer struggles with that.


- David Ferrucci, chief scientist of the IBM Watson project
That's because they'll be competing against Watson, a computer system built by IBM to prove that machines can master the kind of tricky human language featured on the quiz show, where confusing clues often involve puns, jokes and wordplay.
