Re: Is Watson the most advanced super computer in existence?

This thread is really kind of weird.
Why is that? I watched a program - Alien Planet - that discusses the idea that virtually AI will one day explore nearby planets within the, 'goldi-locks zone,' of nearby star systems on its own.

After watching the show it occured to me that we have super computers - like Watson - that have almost the same capabilities as described on the show.

I was curious if Watson and other computers today reach the level of 'intelligence,' necessary today to perform such tasks.

Robert Maxwell said that many of the tasks as described on the show are possible.

Tangentile to the discussion was how 'powerful,' Watson is relative to other supercomputers.

Is this forum not where science and technology is discussed? Do you have anything to contribute to the conversation?
