    Word is they stayed on topic and refrained from politics and insults. It must have been a very collegial and thought-provoking debate.

      I heard the computer mocked the human’s dead son . . .

    A human audience were the judges? That seems biased right there.

      Totally, machines deserve proper representation in contests that are judged. First they need to create a Watson that can judge who won a debate and then they can have this debate again and find out who really won. I suspect that the machine would come out better with other entities of it’s own race.

    I can’t wait to see the office version where we can debate if we should settle or go to trial, pay or not pay that loss of use, should betterment be applied, should we fire the underwriter that wrote the coverage! LOL darn machines will be taking over someday, just hope they wait until after I retire.
