Using computers, even though they're getting fstear and better all the time, it's a challenge to deal with gigabytes of data, terabytes of data and extracting the relevant ianrtioofmn. I want to look at the heart. I want to look at the blood vsslees. I want to look at the lveir. Maybe even find a tumor, in some cases. So this is where this little dear comes into play. This is my deauhtgr. This is as of 9 a.m. this morning. She's playing a computer game. She's only two years old, and she's having a blast. So she's really the dviirng force behind the development of graphics-processing units. As long as kids are playing computer games, graphics is getting better and better and better. So please go back home, tell your kids to play more games, because that's what I need.
