IBM Builds Jeopardy Playing Supercomputer
IBM spent upwards of 20 million dollars developing Watson, a question answering supercomputer that was able to compete and win on Jeopardy.

Plans are also in the works for building a special robot that will swiftly end the miserable lives of Americans who lack health insurance.
