Re: Computer Learns Trivia or Birth of the Matrix?
After watching a few minutes today, I'm almost certain the computers reflexes are kicking their asses.
I'm told the question is electronically sent to the computer the same time it is read. I'd like to know if it is sent in one package or slowly revealed over the time read. If it is the first, the computer actually has a big extra advantage in time to take it all in at once, rather than the contestants.
In the end, that's just nitpicking over the fairness of the competition - which probably doesn't matter to the contestants because I'm certain they are being paid regardless. It is a remarkable feat in computer design regardless.
