£52 Million Govt Funding for New UK Supercomputer

SimilarityEngine Re:Another meaning ... ? (135 comments)

Perhaps I can resolve this: the normal definition of "person" does not allow you to consider two persons to be equivalent to one in general. However, the definition of "computer" - a device that computes - allows this, because "device" is suitably vague with respect to spatial boundaries, physical form etc.
