I wrote a little tool that helps me play Wordle when I feel like cheating a little. It uses a (probably not exhaustive) list of 5 letter words, and scores the words based on the overall frequency of the letters in the word. It also lets you keep track of your guesses so far and the results you got from those guesses. With that information it will give you the best next guesses it can come up with, by giving you words that fit the criteria so far and include letters that are the most popular.
I liked Watson. The ability to discover patterns in huge amounts of raw data and report a highly-relevant response to a spoken query is a huge labor-saving advancement, especially for medical diagnostics. Natural language interaction with our data is going to make so many things easier for so many people.
But the expectations swirling around IBM Debater are a little ridiculous. If you watch the embedded video, they are clearly expecting the machine to make original contributions to debates, and the hope is that people will take arguments from the computer and give those more weight because they are ostensibly dispassionate, objective opinions untainted by ulterior motives or emotion.
