There is no need to be impressed with the intelligence of any modern computer, no matter how large, with its blinking lights, complex displays, and many workers huddled over their terminals. The giant machine is doing nothing more than fetching instructions and executing them. It never has in the past, cannot now, and never in the future will be able to do more or less than this!
