Jeopardy IBM Watson

Jeopardy! challenges even the best human minds. Can a computer win the game?


Move aside R2D2, because Watson is coming to town, and we’re not talking about Holmes’ counterpart. We’re talking about a machine that is going to give Ken Jennings a run for his money.

The IBM project, named Watson, is competing in Jeopardy! against big-winners Jennings and Brad Rutter. Here’s a preview.



Man versus machine, scientists just love putting that notion to the test. Now a competition is under way to judge whether the latest and greatest supercomputer can actually think. The face-off occurs this week on the popular game show “Jeopardy!”

Libyan guantanamo detainees in Abu Saleem prison.

Summary: Post visited two returned Guantanamo detainees to confirm their
welfare and whereabouts, and the legal basis on which they are
being detained in Libya. Muhammad Mansur al-Rimi (ISN: 194) and Ben
Qumu Hamouda (ISN: 557), say they have not been mistreated.
The Abu Salim prison, where they are held, is a place at which
terrorists, extremists and other individuals deemed to be
particularly dangerous to state security are detained.

Exempts: Al-Rimi says he remains in solitary detention in a 15 by 15 foot
cell, but he is able to walk outside regularly, is
allowed to speak to other detainees and has access to medication.
He stated he was visited 3 times by family since his return in Libya.
When asked about the condition of his arm and his teeth Al Rimi said
both were better.
He repeated his earlier claim (ref A) that he sustained the
injury to his arm in 2004 or 2005 during a scuffle with U.S.
soldiers who entered his cell to punish him for allegedly
instigating a disturbance among several other prisoners.
