Nova takes viewers inside an IBM lab where a crack team has been working for nearly three years to perfect a machine that can answer any question. The scientists hope their machine will be able to beat expert contestants in one of the USA's most challenging TV quiz shows -- Jeopardy, which has entertained viewers for over four decades. This program presents the exclusive inside story of how the IBM team developed the world's smartest computer from scratch.

Watson. But will Watson be able to beat out its human competition? duration 54:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
