My son last week asked what "Watson" was. He had seen a Youtube video and he wanted to know what it was.
Instead of geeking out on trying to explain Watson like the above video I showed the Google DeepMind AlphaGo video that shows a specific application of compute power.
He then asked where is the computer that runs DeepMind. DeepMind is in a data center like the one we drive by in The Dalles.
Google DeepMind AlphaGo just beat a Go Champion in the 1st of a 5 game match.

Machine takes 1-0 lead in historic five-game matchup between computer program developed by DeepMind and world’s best Go player Lee Sedol
Now my son wants to visit Google to see a data center.That's so cool. On the other hand his older 14 yr old sister is not on the same page how cool a visit would be. :-) One of these days I may get my daughter interested in data centers.
