Machine 1 0 Humanity in Jeopardy!
I know it isn't machine learning in any real sense, but I'm very much looking forward to IBM's Watson taking on the human masters of Jeopardy! next month. Semi-smart machines like Watson will revolutionise call centre systems over the next decade, improving front line customer service across all platforms and reducing the Developed world's dependence on outsourcing... not to mention being a whizz at punning!
