"Jeopardy!" Champion Watson Visits RIT Today (Video)

A supercomputer that defeated two Jeopardy! champions will be on the campus of Rochester Institute of Technology Tuesday.

IBM’s Watson will be a part of a free, public demonstration starting at noon in the Golisano Hall auditorium at RIT, according to a release from the school. The machine defeated Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings during a special taping of the popular show in 2011.

The Democrat and Chronicle reports RIT grad and IBM developer, Stephan Roorda, will accompany the supercomputer and explain how it works to visitors. There will also be time for the public to ask Watson questions.
