Listen, we all know that robots are going to take over the world any second now. But do they have to be so freaking smug about it? Take Watson, the terrifying Jeopardy-playing robot who resembles the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey and has a voice that makes everything sound like an advertisement for hand cream. Watson will compete against Jeopardy grand masters Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings in a “Human Vs. Machine” showdown that will air Feb. 14-16. However, there’s a video of a press demonstration circulating the Internet, and it doesn’t look good, fellow humans. Watson walks away from this round with a serious lead. However, there is a silver lining: Watson fails miserably in the category “Children’s Book Authors.” Awww, what’s the matter, Watson? You never read Dr. Seuss when you were a kid? Oh, that’s right: You were never a kid. Stupid robot. Check out the video below:
