Day 3 of the Rational Software Conference kicked off with a bang this morning, with an awesome keynote featuring Dr. David Ferrucci sharing some of the work behind creating a machine (codenamed "Watson") that will challenge some of the best human minds on Jeopardy, and special guests Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage of TV's Mythbusters.
They took questions from the audience and from Twitter. Unfortunately, even though Jamie brought a fire extinguisher on stage, they did NOT blow anything up here at the conference.
We did ASK, though!
