Double Jeopardy

PhysOrg Science News just reported on the defeat of the two greatest human Jeopardy! champions by a specially designed Artificial Intelligence machine.
The interest here is not that the computer knew the answers, that is a forgone conclusion.  The trick is that it understood the questions (irony, double entendre and all) without help.
And thus half the Sci-fi we will be reading is now plausible in the next 2 years. We are doomed as SKYNET is now upon us!!

On the plus side, maybe the phone bots can correctly route my calls now...
