BOSTON (CBS) – It was men versus machine Monday night on Jeopardy, as two former champions squared off against a computer.

The machine, named Watson, was programmed to compete on the show.

It was only Round 1 of a three-night test to see if mere mortals can keep pace with a high-tech super-brain. But, the science fiction buffs among us can’t help wondering: if they conquer Jeopardy, can world domination by computers be far behind?

WBZ’s Jon Keller is at large.

Watch Watson compete on Jeopardy on Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. on WBZ-TV.
