I’m sure you have heard by now the Jeopardy competition between the IBM supercomputer Watson and the two Jeopardy champions which the IBM supercomputer won handily. The IBM super computer handily beat Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter (certified Jeopardy Champions) by over $50K in prize money.
My questions for you is this: Can this supercomputer take jobs away from humans? Can this computer supplant or replace the humans that helped to load it with information and answers? Will the scientists and programmers that built this computer be replaced in the future by computers like “Watson”?
This article seems to think that this is going to happen. I just don’t buy it.
Human know how and ability will surely outlast a computer..
What do you think?
