WHICH SEARCH ENGINE MAKES THE BEST CONTESTANT ON JEOPARDY?

IBM is building a computer to challenge the best contestants on the TV show “Jeopardy.” But how would ordinary search engines do in comparison?

Stephen Wolfram, founder of the company that makes Mathematica software and the calculating site¬†WolframAlpha.com, did an analysis of 200,000 Jeopardy clues to find how quickly and correctly the leading search engines find answers. As you can see from the chart, Google wins by a nose, except against Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings, who blows them all out of the water. You can read Wolfram’s analysis¬†here.
