In February 2011, Watson defeated Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings in the Jeopardy!
Challenge. Jeopardy! known for its complex, tricky questions and
very smart champions, was the perfect choice for this extraordinary challenge. To play, much less win, Watson
had to answer questions posed in every nuance of natural language,
including puns, synonyms and homonyms, slang and jargon.
Watson was not
connected to the internet for the match. It only knew what it had
amassed through years of interaction and learning from a large set of
unstructured knowledge. Using machine learning, statistical analysis and
natural language processing to find and understand the clues in the
questions, Watson compared possible answers, by ranking its confidence
in their accuracy, and responded – all in about three seconds.
