What's important about this work is not just that the computer was able to play against real people at on a game show, but rather to drive the creation of computing systems that can process natural language with near-human accuracy -- specifically in the context of asking and answering questions. We will be cover more details on how we accomplish this in future blog entries, but for know it is important to understand that what Watson demonstrated with the Jeopardy! game was an incredible breakthrough in the level of comprehension that can be applied to natural language.
