The final score to today's match was $35,734 for Watson, $10,400 for Rutter and a lowly $4,800 for Jennings.
About the only consolation for humankind was that the computer missed its Final Jeopardy question.
The clue was: "Its largest airport was named for a World War II hero; its second for a World War II battle." Jennings and Rutter answered correctly, but the machine said "Toronto" rather than "Chicago."
On Twitter, the response to the trivia battle was amusing in its own right.
yo the supercomputer on #jeopardy was crazy..... they didn't have a chance
Well at least Watson's final jeopardy answer wasn't "where is Sarah Connor" #jeopardy
Here is how the action went down on Monday's show, when Watson was introduced to television audiences.
