You might think … what is that? Well the Z3 was actually the first Turing complete computer, build 1941. Apparently, an addition took 0.8 seconds, multiplications 3 seconds … while consuming 4000 W of power.

Compared to your smart phone that is pretty ridiculous and today's real speaker will use much more powerful CPUs/GPUs to run the advanced AI programs about which you can read in the printout in the hall ways of the physics building.
