Recently, an IBM computer won the practice round on Jeopardy against two top contestants. This is a huge deal in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) world. It shows that AI has come a long long way in simulating human thought.

John Kelly, the director of IBM Research said, “We have created a computer system which has the ability to understand natural human language, which is a very difficult thing for a computer to do.” “In the field of artificial intelligence, people spend their lifetimes trying to advance that science inches. What Watson does and has demonstrated is the ability to advance the field of artificial intelligence by miles.”

Who is Watson you say? Watson is the name of the machine. It’s named after the legendary IBM president Thomas Watson. This machine showcases the company’s computing expertise and research in advanced science.

Watson won in the first practice round, earning $4,400. Ken Jennings, who won 74 consecutive games during the show’s 2004-2005 season, trailed a little with $3,400. Finally, Brad Rutter, who has earned a cumulative $3.3 million on Jeopardy, was in last.

Why do people still use other social networking sites other than Facebook? Sites like Myspace are now becoming obsolete because the new “in” is Facebook.  It has become so popular that there is a verb for it, like Google. When you meet someone and want to keep in touch with them, what do you say? “Facebook me!”

So what I don’t understand is why sites like Myspace still exist. It is clear that as long as Facebook exists, sites like Myspace have no chance. Facebook is THE KING of social networking, and unless it is shut down or it shuts itself down, in my opinion, site like Myspace shouldn’t even bother to try to attract users.
