sometimes i think about how Stanford had an AI in Medicine experimentation system in the 70s/80s
they were a little too early
@gewt expert systems can still do a lot though
@KitRedgrave ehhh. you're at <1 MIPS and <=4 megawords of RAM
@gewt true, but that's still pretty fast and a lot of working memory compared to people.
@gewt still though, that probably wouldn't scale up to a whole hospital of usage
@KitRedgrave definitely not - you're also not gonna fit a complex medical compendium - unless you manage to attach an entire winchester disk system to an SA-10 somehow
@KitRedgrave error - you'd want later drives than an original Winchester - you'd want later IBM DASD - which SUMEX-AI used
@petra i saw a story once where someone encountered eliza in emacs and it helped them with their depression, so i others do too apparently
gewt's private instance. May occasionally reference television.
