HAL (Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer) is a sentient computer that controls the systems of the Discovery One spacecraft. He is mostly depicted as a camera lens containing a red or yellow dot.
HAL is capable of speech, speech recognition, facial recognition, natural language processing, lip reading, art appreciation, interpreting emotional behaviours, automated reasoning, and playing chess (and sometimes killing humans).
It can only be attributable to human error.
