How does Watson know when to buzz-in during this week's Jeopardy?

For a normal game, this discussion
suggests an assistant enables the buzzers shortly after Trebek finishes talking. Is Watson getting fed that "ok-to-answer" signal or is it actually listening for the end of the question to buzz-in?
