Till there is a ‘yin to try’ there cant be a ‘yang’ far away in terms of a game; a challenge! What really makes a cool ‘versus’ is a Man Vs THE MACHINE gaming! And that will always be a “jeopardy”… if not a double one at that. IBM Watson - Jeopardy is more than that ... its in making of an epic. Anything with a Super Computer is 'somthing'.
Like Tron the creation becomes as much a complete diorama of ‘computing’ capability showcase. What more can be artificial, than intelligence i.e., AI. So we set a level playing field to test the turf of Watson, the recently launched “Analytical computing system that specializes in natural human language and provides specific answers to complex question at rapid speed “ lead by Dr.Dave Ferruci, IBM… which btw trounced the actual Jeopardy Winners: Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter by a slim margin of $1000 in practice session.
Let’s watch the mind-boggling Neurons Vs. Syllabi Vs Computing prowess prove their respective standing LIVE on Feb 14, 15 and 16 with $1million in taking. Till then lets get busy playing DB2 Detective Game or build our very own online game infrastructure. Are you, Game?

Is Green IT still smart?
BTW: Double Jeopardy itself is an enigma, legally. One of the most challenged and longest standing law, dating back to 12th century, is still in its Quixotic best. It is very fitting that such a namesake game is played if at all with a Super Computer!!! A size of 10 refrigerators < anybody for Virtualization or Green Data Centre> powered by 10racks of IBM POWER 750 servers running on Linux, using 15 terabytes RAM created by a team of 25 scientists in 4years, with 2,880 processor core, operating at 80 teraflops < 80trillion operations per sec> . And it was fed with 200million pages to scan 2million pages in less than 3 second .. to interpret the very primal human advantage – “Language”.
