We heard about the Twilio Jeopardy game during orientation and initially though of using IBM's Watson to dominate the high score table and secure first place. After some searching, we discovered that Watson's natural language and knowledge systems weren't open for public use yet, but an archive of historical Jeopardy questions and answers was. We whipped up a quick Python server to receive Twilio's SMS responses, grab the Jeopardy question, find the appropriate answer in the online database, and send an answer back using Twilio's Python API. Some competition arose, but in the end we stood victorious. We had a great time making this!
