V. ReadingComprehension 5 % (@1) Rise of Thinking Machines In the battle of man versus machine, humans might have something to learn from their creations.An artificial intelligence AI computer system named Watson beat two of the best contestants ever to play Jeopardy!, the popular television quiz show in the United States. In a two-day tournament against Ken Jennings, who held a record of winning 74 games in a row, andBrad Rutter, who is the show’s all-time money winner, Watson defeated its human competitors handily. The victory gave IBM, the computer’s creator, a $ 1 million prize and left humans to wonder about the meaning of Watson. Watson is actually a collection of many IBM servers connected together to increase the system’s overall power. Thisthinking machineuses its special software that allows it not only to understand human speech but also to respond to questions in a synthesized voice. When asked a question, Watson quickly searches through its vast array of stored knowledge, such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, literary works, and the full texts of Wikipedia. It can process a million books per second and respond based on three most probable answers that it can find in the database. During the Jeopardy! game, a video screen displayed Watson as an avatar alongside the human competitors. Unlike humans, Watson cannot leave its room at IBM and cannot work without electricity. However, the computer has an enormous advantage in the speed with which it presses the buzzer that contestants use to respond to questions. The participant (the person or the machine) that buzzes in first is allowed to answer the question, and Watson can buzz in much quicker than humans. Once defeat was certain, Ken Jennings wrote a humorous message on his video screen: “I, for one, welcome our new computer overlords.” However, most analysts agreed that Watson’s victory was good for humans. Watson’s success demonstrates thatAI system can be built to analyze complex problems and suggest solutions based on intricate patterns, which is a skill that people can use to solve challenges in various fields such as security, health care, and finance.

         Every year, on July 4, the international "Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest" is held in Coney Island, New York. The contest was started in 1916, when four people raced to eat the most hot dogs to show how much they loved America. That year, the winner ate 13 hot dogs. For a period(一段時間), whoever eats the most hot dogs in twelve minutes is the winner, but in 2008, the racing time was changed to ten minutes again because it was the racing time in 1916.
