Welcome to the World According to Jeopardy! WikiEdit

This wiki is a proof-of-concept project demonstrating the (very incomplete) history of human knowledge as told only by a dataset of over 200,000 Jeopardy! questions and answers.

Format Edit

Articles Edit

Pages are comprised entirely of content from relevant Jeopardy! questions and answers, with minimal changes made to the original text. Questions have, however, been rephrased to include the answer within the same sentence. Answers are placed within brackets and replace words which reference the answer, such as "this" or "the." The exact answers are in bold-face; any other words added to increase readability are not.

For example, consider the following question in its original Jeopardy! format:

"Barney, George W. Bush's Scottish terrier, was a gift from this New Jersey governor, now head of the EPA."[1]
The answer to this question is:
"Christine Todd Whitman"[2].
Within the wiki, this question-answer pair would be combined and formatted as:
"Barney, George W. Bush's Scottish terrier, was a gift from New Jersey governor [Christine Todd Whitman], now head of the EPA."[3]

References Edit

All references to Jeopardy! questions and answers point to the corresponding row in the CSV file (see "About the data" section below). As such, references are in the form of comma-separated values with the following format:

Show Number, Air Date, Round, Category, Value, Question, Answer
