Colossus is a large-scale computer system that was used by the British during World War II to decode German messages. The machine was designed and built by British mathematician Alan Turing and was the world's first programmable electronic computer.

In the years since its creation, Colossus has become a symbol of the power of computing and its potential to revolutionize the way we think about and interact with the world. Colossus has been the subject of many books, articles, and videos over the years.
