In 1997, the Deep Blue computer made front-page headlines worldwide when it defeated world chess champion Garry Kasparov. In mid-February, IBM's Watson artificial intelligence software took on an even more complex challenge, competing on three Jeopardy! episodes against Brad Rutter, the current biggest all-time money winner, and championship streak record holder Ken Jennings. Final Jeopardy the book was finished before that historic face-off, but its subject matter is far more fascinating than any mere game reprise because it provides the behind-the-scenes story of Watson's development into an omnivorous fact-finder.
