IBM computer challenges human to game of Jeopardy

IBM follows up Deep Blue’s 1997 chess triumph against Garry Kasparov with a computer programmed to play US trivia gameshow, Jeopardy. IBM hopes that multiple Jeopardy winner Ken Jennings will challenge the computer, which will draw upon its indexed trivia information – although the computer will not be connected to the internet during the competition.

IBM intends for the public challenge to demonstrate efficient search methods to be utilised in future search engines.
