"Soft Machine" (1984) - Architecture Machine Group

In this video the Architecture Machine Group (a think-tank laboratory that preceded MIT's current Media Lab) introduces the Interactive Graphical Robot System and Video Slidathon. As the computer states, “The man-computer interface has evolved from the teletypewriter to workstations, that accomplishes a spatial metaphor for data management. In this experimental system the interface is metaphorically a person, an alter ego who provides conversational access to several conventional computer programs.” Produced in1984 by Patrick Purcell.
