Alpha laugh

But it got confused when I entered the request in another form - "$25 million 1945 in 2008". The phrase "1945 in" was interpreted as 1945 inches, which Alpha multiplied by $25 million and then 2008 to give 98 trillion, measured in the bizarre unit of "inch US dollars".

BAD HARDWARE: What about military use of this intelligent search breakthrough ?

Joke: Military Computer
The US has succeeded in building a computer able to solve any strategic or tactical problem. Military leaders are assembled in front of the new machine and instructed to feed a difficult tactical problem into it. They describe a hypothetical situation to the computer and then ask the pivotal question: ATTACK OR RETREAT?

The computer hums away for an hour and then comes up with the answer: YES.

The generals look at each other, somewhat stupefied. Finally one of them submits a second request to the computer: YES WHAT?

Instantly, the computer responded: YES SIR.
