Watson, a super computer from IBM is challenging the human Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in the first Man vs. Machine Jeopardy! competition. Below you can see a nice teaser for the competition.
The first round already took place on Monday, February 14th 2011, and resulted in a tie between Brad and the machine. Although Watson lead most part of the game, it got some wrong answers near the end which set it back considerably. The match will continue on Tuesday the  15th and Wednesday the 16th. So far humanity still has a chance but it is quite possible that we will all be obsolete by the end of this match. You can see the full first round below as it was kindly uploaded  by a YouTube user.
