The Machine That Won the War A Window on the Universe Themes

The Machine That Won the War

  • Men reflecting on the unsettling peace after such a long war: ironic that there are conflicts between them
  • Reflects on the corrupting influence of men on machines (individual pride, competition etc. getting in the way of unbiased information): ironic because Jablonsky then changed all the data to suit his needs – all fake; becomes meaningless
  • Both men (on either side of the machine: feeding data, acting on the instructions) were acting to make the other’s job meaningless – and the computer completely pointless and meaningless
  • The computer didn’t win the war – it was all down to chance (the flip of a coin – a very technologically limited decision-maker)
