Today’s video suggests two things:
1. Technology advances are astounding.
2. I may be classified, by some, as old.
In 1975 I programmed a computer to play golf, using a random number generator. The computer was in a university where I attended a summer math camp as a high schooler. The computer was the size of a living room with spinning wheels of tape. I input my data on a keyboard, which then printed a punch card. I inserted the punch card into the computer, which ran the program. It was trial and error for days as I had to correct the programming if I had a single error in the code.
I also remember reading about the Cray computer mentioned in this video and being awed by its computing power. It was around this same time that they were trying to create a computer that could win a chess match against a human Grand Master.
