Web TV Series Teaches Computers What It’s Like To Be Human
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.
