Smartest Machine on Earth

Smartest Machine on earth is an example of a geeky-brainiac means of cross promotion, providing a background to Jeopardy showdown, which was to happen the next week, between Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and Watson; KEN Jennings is the one whose face Alex Trebec was completely sick of, Brad rutter was the winner of the most amount of money in the history of the show and Watson is an IBM computer, a result of a four year effort to make an ultimate learning machine.

It begins with a little glimpse of the world of the geeks, where they are shown talking about how they got entwined into building a smart machine which would ultimately render them jobless, steal their girlfriends, obtain their PIN numbers and even change the locks on their doors!

There is a huge amount of sci-fi element in it. There are clips of the heroine’s mechanical doppelganger in Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, Forbidden Planet and Lost in Space co-star Robby the Robot,just to establish how long man has been dreaming of being displaced by this machine.
