as a student I did a presentation on what was then known as 'The Thinking Machine'. It was actually a company that specialized in multi-processors ... specifically (from a theoretical perspective) over a thousand of them. In practical terms they were only able to successfully manage a small fraction of that number but it was still good enough to have major impacts on data retrieval algorithms. My presentation was idiotic and typically at a level of juvenile sophistication ... :) ... My specialty.
