But Colossus soon exceeds even Forbin’s calculated expectations, learning to think independently of the Colossus Programming Office, processing data over one hundred times faster than Forbin and his team had originally anticipated. The President hands off full control of the nation’s missiles and other defense protocols to Colossus and makes the announcement to the world that he has ensured peace.
