It won't be long before a computer will regularly win against any human. It basically trounced them in most of the categories but made a few mistakes right at the end (it still took home more money). This time next year it'll be soundly thrashing all challengers day in and day out.

Several people talked about Watson and why it was important beyond Jeopardy.  It was a good reminder for me that building software is just part of the equation.  A real system requires many different skills and can make a huge difference in the world.
