Produced by Dallas-based Bill Stokes Associates, “The Computer Tutor . . . or How to Teach Your Computer to Read” explains the innovative and exciting new technology of the electronic retina computing reader coming to Dallas company, Recognition Equipment, Inc. The electronic retina used optical character recognition to read our language, not holes entered by hand on punch cards. It could reach up to 2,400 characters per second with less that 1 error in every 100,000 characters it reads, while simultaneously processing the input data. Watch this truly innovative technology explained early in the information era when data volumes were skyrocketing!
