My neighbor is a retired machinist who said he worked in the facility where watson was built. I watched the program and found it very interesting. "algorithm", no there's something to get your brain working! Amazing how they are able to advance the thought process of watson to understand the subtle differences in the question and sift through all his information for the right answer. Will such a computer someday be able to pick up on things like sarcasm?
