  Colossus
       
          (A huge and ancient statue on the Greek island of Rhodes).
       
          1.  The Colossus and Colossus Mark II computers used
          by Alan Turing at Bletchley Park, UK during the Second
          World War to crack the "Tunny" cipher produced by the Lorenz
          SZ 40 and SZ 42 machines.  Colossus was a semi-fixed-program
          vacuum tube calculator (unlike its near-contemporary, the
          freely programmable Z3).
       
          ["Breaking the enemy's code", Glenn Zorpette, IEEE Spectrum,
          September 1987, pp. 47-51.]
       
          2. The computer in the film "Colossus: The Forbin Project".
          Forbin is the designer of an incredibly sophisticated computer
          that will run all of America's nuclear defences.  Shortly
          after being turned on, it detects the existence of Goliath,
          the Soviet counterpart, previously unknown to US Planners.
          Both computers insist that they be linked, and after taking
          safeguards to preserve confidential material, each side agrees
          to allow it.  As soon as the link is established the two
          become a new super computer and threaten the world with the
          immediate launch of nuclear weapons if they are detached.
          Colossus begins to give its plans for the management of the
          world under its guidance.  Forbin and the other scientists
          form a technological resistance to Colossus which must operate
          underground.
