What Is Humans Are Doomed, Alex?

Well, in case you didn't hear, IBM had a computer named Watson compete on Jeopardy against two of its greatest champions of all time. And the results were not pretty: Big Blue crushed the competition with a two-day total of $77K, which was slightly better than Jeopardy grand champ Ken Jennings at $24K. Jennings, showing great sportsmanship, wrote with his Final Jeopardy question: "I, for one, welcome our new computer overlords."
