Watson and Jeopardy

Here is a fascinating talk from a 2013 TED conference, by Ken Jennings about his loss in 2011 to IBM's Watson, playing Jeopardy. This was a milestone not only for him personally - being replaced by a machine "at the only thing you're really good at" - but for the entire field of AI.

Much has happened in the field since 2013, but Mr. Jenning's talk really underlines the significance (sorry: "cognificance") of AI in terms of the human condition.
