Jeopardy! Ruler James Holzhauer’s brother, Ian Holzhauer gives James’ genius shout-out

John Williams

Alex Trebek, host of the “Jeopardy!” quiz show, speaks to an audience of primarily media about an upcoming “Jeopardy!” show featuring an IBM computer called “Watson” in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011. It’s the size of 10 refrigerators, and it swallows encyclopedias whole, but an IBM computer was lacking one thing it needed to battle the greatest champions from the “Jeopardy!” quiz TV show – it couldn’t hit a buzzer. But that’s been fixed, and on Thursday the hardware and software system named Watson played a competitive practice round against two champions. A “Jeopardy!” show featuring the computer will air in mid-February, 2011. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
