No. Watson is not the "most advanced" super computer on the planet. It's just a really good search engine, with good publicity.
Meh. I don't think you're giving, "him," enough credit. How many computers do you run accross in everyday life that can beat not 1 but 2 or 3 Jeporady champions using natural language interaction?
There are computers that can beat the best human players at chess. That doesn't mean the computer is intelligent. It's just capable of calculating the outcomes of thousands of possible sequences of moves really, really fast.
