Greetings to each and everyone,
<<But in the end it was simply brute force that crushed Kasparov>>
nope, it was a mistake.. Garry 'just relaxed' at the wrong moment. It's happened
to _any good_ chess player.
You know this opening 'inside/out', you're excited... you make a mistake...
With all due respect: a machine will never be 'better' than a human chess player. It's not just about winning it. It's about enjoying it...

Subject: Re: Deep Blue - white paper
Deep Blue involved some innovations with respect to the shape of the search tree - the ability to project some single lines 60 moves into the future, for example. But in the end it was simply brute force that crushed Kasparov. Deep Blue's feat cannot be compared to cognition; it was an autonomic process that happened to play chess.
