IN 1996 SOME EXTRAORDINARY THINGS HAPPENED
For the first time ever, the IBM Deep Blue supercomputer
called checkmate to the champion Kasparov.
In Scotland, we witness the birth of the famous
Dolly the sheep, the first cloned mammal
and one of the great errors of genetic science.
Some will remember it as the year of the last “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!!”
of the Ramones. Others, as the year of the arrival of Pikachu
and the rest of Pokemon creatures.
For us, 1996 is the beginning of an engineering adventure
that today celebrates 25 years.
In the GDO rearview mirror, we see where we have come from,
what we have enjoyed (and suffered)
and how lucky we are having met people like you.
And we are even more fascinated by the sight of the path ahead,
an amazing future. Let’s discover it together.
