This is a question from a quiz that I recently attended.

Where would you have recently heard a piano piece by Ludovico Einaudi called I Giorni?

Answer to Previous Question

As Sourabh 'succintly' put it -- "Watson, named after IBM's founder, Thomas J. Watson, is an artificial intelligence program developed by IBM designed to answer questions posed in natural language. It has been developed as part of the DeepQA research project.It is scheduled to compete on the television quiz show Jeopardy! as a test of its abilities; the competition will be aired in three Jeopardy! episodes running from February 14–16, 2011."

Tezeshwar, Sourabh , Appuchin , Kaushik get it right.
