The ASU Advanced Computing Center (A2C2) is co-hosting an event featuring the IBM high performance computing (HPC) team and special guest Watson, the computing system recently featured on the game show "Jeopardy!"

Mingle with students, faculty and staff from ASU, NAU, UA, Arizona’s local community colleges, and A2C2’s partner organizations TGen, the Arizona Science Center and more.
