Conspiracies abound

…making it about 40 times faster than the IBM Deep Blue supercomputer that defeated chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. That processing capability will be used to improve blurry telescopic images of objects in space.

Theoretically, if it can improve the quality of the image, they could use it to blur clear images, and just say “Oh, sorry didn’t work. Bad IBM.” I wonder if anyone has thought of that?
