IBM’s Watson Supercomputer is going to be challenging top Jeopardy players next month (if you have yet to watch the videos on Engadget, you really should – this is mind-blowing stuff).
Watson’s public face is a monitor showing an avatar that provides visual cues as to processing, confidence in answers, and more. The avatar is entirely Flash based, and was built by Joshua Davis and Branden Hall (who have posted some details and screen-shots). Mike Chambers has also posted some details on the project.
