VIDEO: IBM's Supercomputer to go on Jeopardy!

Last year, Dr. David Ferrucci, leader of the IBM Watson project team, said the system named Watson would have to spend a lot of time studying before it was deemed ready to compete.

"The system would have 'read' many, many natural language texts -- books, reference materials, all kinds of information -- and tried to analyze and organize that information in such a way that it can see the meaning of the question and try to figure out what are likely answers," Ferrucci said.

Though the New York Times reports that Watson will not be appearing on Jeopardy! until this fall, we now have a video of Watson in action. Watch below to see what happens when Watson succeeds, and when he fails.
