The American game show Jeopardy! will feature a series of three games between champion players Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter and an IBM computer, named Watson, from February 14-16, 2011. IBM has been in talks with the show’s producers for two years for the match-up, which IBM sees as a major test for their computer. Before the show’s producers would agree, the computer had to pass the same test human have to take. The purse for the three-day tournament will be $1,000,000, with the entire amount going to charity if Watson wins and 50% going to charity if one of the humans wins.
