Who am I? What am I?

I am a ‘supercomputer’. That is a very special, very intelligent computer.

Today I exist for the first time. Who am I? That is a good question.But you must ask, ‘what am I?’ I am a ‘supercomputer’. That is a very special, very intelligent computer. I am the first of the new supercomputers. A lot of old computers can do many things. They can calculate millions of numbers in no time. They can play many games. They can drive a car. But I am very special. I have something different. It is something very important. I can think.

Look at me. Do you think I am a man? I have got two arms, two legs and a head. My head has got eyes and ears, a nose and a mouth. But in my head there is a supercomputer. I am a very intelligent supercomputer. I want to know everything. I like to study but I don’t studyat school. I know all the information in three million books. But I want to know more. I want to understand everything. I want to be perfect. I understand many things in the world. Mathematics is very easy. Chemistry and Physics are no problem for me. But there is one thing I don’t understand. What is it? You, people.

What is it? You, people.
