Yes! The computer from “2001, A space Odyssey” (the book from Arthur C. Clarke and the movie from Stanley Kubrick) was offically born (first powered) on 12th January 1992. So, it is exactly 15-year old today. Happy birthday HAL-9000!
There, HAL-9000 is an Artificial Intelligence computer (the AI word was common then) that takes its own destinay in its virtual hands while killing the human astronauts on board a futuristic spaceship.
I recommend specially both the novel and the movie.
