Saluting Deep Blue

Today in 1997, IBM’s chess computer, Deep Blue defeated human grand master Garry Kasparov.

Kasparov demanded a rematch, but IBM declined. Kasparov also claimed that IBM cheated, but such claims have never been given much credence.

As Dr. Glenn Reynolds often says, “I, for one, welcome our new robotic overlords.”
