    Mechanical Turk connects.

    Jeff Bezos, of Amazon in picture 1 – is his new venture – rides on the credo of Artificial Artificial Intelligence

    Picture 2 shows the original historical Mechanical Turk – the chess playing 'automaton' which basically had a human sitting inside and making the moves. Thus, Artificial Artificial Intelligence.

    Yes, I love that phrase. Artificial Artificial Intelligence.

    The connection is the Turk/Mturk
    Pic 1: Jeff Bezos of launching the Amazon web services one of which is MTurk (Mechanical Turk) named after 'The Turk' (pic 2) .
    Pic 2: "The Turk" was a chess-playing automaton of the 18th century which was made by Wolfgang von Kempelen.

    Jeff Bezos and the Turk(supposed to be a automated chess playingmachine but was a hoax).
    the amazon mechanical turk is inspired by the turk.

  5. bs

    Can't seem to recognize the first guy, though he looks familiar. But the second is a picture of the Turk, which was supposedly a chess playing automaton, but actually had a human inside operating levers to make the moves.
