    That is interesting. Who is more intelligent now, the creator, or the created? Almost sounds so biblical to me. I know a lot of people would say it's still the former who's more intelligent, and I am one of them.

    Definitely creator is smarter, no doubt. Machines have bugs made by creator, so without former can't solve it. I'm agree with Angela that former is more intelligent.

    Asking the question is to answer it. Unless a computer can wonder about the same?

    Definitely interesting Day 1. How do they control that Watson won't repeat answers? He repeated Ken's wrong answer... "What are the 1920s?"
