January Series: And the Answer is–Why is it Better to be a Generalist? (Ken Jennings)
January 23, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
When it comes to quiz shows, no one has done it better than Ken Jennings. The former Utah software engineer rose to fame in 2004 when he spent six months as a contestant on Jeopardy! His 75-game streak and $2.52 million in winnings are still Jeopardy! records today. As a speaker, Jennings appears at college and corporate events nationwide, covering topics ranging from the importance of education to artificial intelligence (specifically his encounter with IBM’s Watson) to his love of geography — always sharing his insider stories from behind the scenes at Jeopardy!
The 2023 January Series is every weekday, January 9th through the 27th from 12:30-1:30 p.m. EST. The White Lake Community Library will be streaming the lectures live each day at 12:30 in the meeting room, or you can tune in online with on-demand viewing until midnight each day.
