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.

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