understudy
Information
↳ Agnes & Us (2013)
In the third quarter of 2013, team understudy (which comprised a team leader, line technician and mathematician) challenged a computer named ‘Agnes’ to a line drawing competition. The competition involved recreating a set arrangement of lines derived from the equation of a circle. All lines were to be drawn freehand without the aid of any line drawing apparatus.
Realising that there was no feasible method to outperform the superior machine, team understudy gracefully conceded the competition to Agnes the Computer. In an absolute display of class, both competitors agreed to release their final efforts in a combined, commemorative token of sportsmanship.
Agnes was decommissioned the following day in an unrelated workplace incident.
