I was watching the faux documentary, "alien planet," that details the fictional exploration of an alien planet in the future by using AI like robots and intelligence. [very good BTW if you haven't seen it]
And it got me thinking is Watson the human beating super computer on Jeporady even close to such AI, and could hypothetically Watson by itself pilot the exploration of a probe to even one of our planets in this solar system with little or no human intervention?
Secondly, is Watson the most advanced quasi AI we have currently? Or is there better out there?
