m ss ng p eces and Sundance Channel have released an original series, named RESET, which is designed primarily for computers, not humans, to watch.

The idea behind the show is to teach computers what it is like to be human by exposing them to the richness of the human experience. RESET is inspired by the increasingly intimate and complex relationships that we are developing with our computers. The show also premieres as Watson, the IBM supercomputer, trounces two former Jeoprady! kings, displaying a stunning grasp of the nuances of human language.

Interested to see what computers are watching these days? Head over to RESET to watch the first episodes and find accompanying ephemera, posted by Claire Evans of YACHT, about our love affair with technology.
