Begin the Skynet Takeover...
There's a video floating around of my favorite game show Jeopardy!, and it pits quiz genius Ken Jennings and another former contestant against a supercomputer named Watson. Needless to say, I'm intrigued by the concept, and at the same time, totally freaked as hell. Observe:

What I think is interesting about this Watson is that it runs on 15 terabytes of RAM and 2,880 processor cores. And for those that don't understand computer specs, that's pretty damn fast. It's basically able to process info with almost human-like speed. Granted, IBM only programmed it to work on Jeopardy!, but if Terminator and The Matrix have taught me anything about self-thinking machines, it's only a matter of time before this thing turns fully sentient, lol.
