IBM Watson search algorithm vs Jeopardy’s Best Players

IBM’s Watson search routine is one of the best in the world.   Watson is not as popular as Google search partly because it takes longer to answer questions, but in many ways Watson may be a more powerful “Search Algorithm” than Google search.

Watson’s brilliancy will be tested in February against Jeopardy’s best contestants:

IBM had announced a Jeopardy test for Watson over a year ago and we are checking on why there has been such a long delay in the contest, now scheduled for three episodes in February 2011.
