Color Commentary from Watson Research team on Nova


During last night's airing of Nova's The Smartest Machine on Earth episode on IBM Watson, members of the IBM Watson team, including David Ferrucci, head of the team; David Gondek, strategy team leader; and Eric Brown, DeepQA architecture specialist, were online and live blogging along with the show.

It makes for a rather entertaining read as they react to Watson's ups and downs over the episode, and share additional details on what was happening behind the scenes (e.g., what were they thinking their chances of getting the Jeopardy producers on board after their first demonstration.)
