‘Jeopardy!’ legend Ken Jennings to headline Nebraska Science Festival

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The greatest “Jeopardy!’ player ever is coming to Nebraska this spring.

Ken Jennings will headline the Nebraska Science Festival on April 6, delivering a presentation on artificial intelligence.

In 2004, Jennings won a record 74 games and $2.5 million on “Jeopardy!”

But in 2011, he famously lost to IBM’s supercomputer Watson.

Jennings is now the co-host of “Jeopardy!” after Alex Trebek’s death in 2020.

The science festival will take place throughout April, with a variety of science- and technology-related presentations, activities and discussions held across the state.

Kennings will give his talk at 7:30 p.m. at the Boys Town Music Hall in Omaha.
