Watson - But Can It Play Jeopardy?

This comes from Josh:

Here is a video I found interesting about the IBM computer "Watson" that has been competing and succeeding in Jeopardy recently. I really liked this video, and the topic because it deals with computer programming, something that I am interested in and am taking next year. The video shows a brief summary of Watson's creation, which went through a lot of obstacles in order to make a competent computer that could deal with the complex, clever jeopardy questions at a quick enough rate to compete with legitimate Jeopardy contestants.
