visionary /n./ 1. One who hacks vision, in the sense of an
Artificial Intelligence researcher working on the problem of
getting computers to `see' things using TV cameras. (There
isn't any problem in sending information from a TV camera to a
computer. The problem is, how can the computer be programmed to
make use of the camera information? See SMOP,
AI-complete.) 2. [IBM] One who reads the outside literature.
At IBM, apparently, such a penchant is viewed with awe and wonder.
