Before there was Watson (or Hal) there was the Perceptron

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

I thought Ken and the rest of y'all would like this short clip about a 1950's computer they were trying to teach facial recognition to.

Warning 1 - the video fires up immediately.
Warning 2 - that site has several NSFW videos on it, usually helpfully labeled stag or burlesque, so make sure you read the descriptions if you are concerned about nudity. However, they are NSFW videos from the 50s and 60s, so for the most part they probably wouldn't get more than an R rating nowadays.
In a state so non-intuitive as to be called weird...
