Thumbs up Kasparov vs Deep Blue

This short It is an interesting, clip really. The look on Kasparov's face is just freaking priceless. So if you have a spare 6 minutes and 6 seconds, take a look.

I think Deep Fritz would beat Deep Blue

.. Been a while since I've seen Kasparov.. Or played chess for that matter.. hehe.. This guy is a genious. Reading through some of his games just makes you appreciate his game play.

When I was in high school, I had a rating just over 2000 - which wasn't too bad. But, whenever I used to go through games by this guy, it just makes you wonder "how the heck did he think of that?!"

I like watching computer chess matches, for that reason. A lot of the programs play a very complex game.

Some programs I've got (which work on the Winbord engine) are:
GNUChess, Crafty, Green Light Chess, Fruit

Out of these, Green Light Chess seems to be the strongest, but I think Crafty makes the most interesting plays

I think a chess master has a rating of 2500+, and a grandmaster has a rating of 3500+

That's a good rating man. Keep at it, you will get there .. A rating close to 1800 implies a very strong chess player ..

Nope.. No one has ever reached that high. The highest rating "ever" reached by anyone past or present is 2851 (give or take a few points) - by Gary Kasparov.

An [International Master] typically has a rating 2200 or above. A [Grand master] typically has a rating 2400 and above. And "elite" [Grand Master] - guys like Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand - have ratings over 2700. There's usually only like 1-2 people over 2800 at a given time.

Very interesting video, Entepriser.

Actually when I first heard about the challenge, and that Kasparov had won a match, I was shocked! I just couldn't believe a human being could beat a supercomputer that could plan millions of moves ahead. I suppose it's my Asimovian love for machines. After thinking it through, I could only see two possibilities:

1) Even if a computer can plan millions of moves ahead, it still needs to pick the correct one. So the first possibility is that the algorithm in charge of selecting a move isn't very good (yet). How do we even define a good move?

2) The second possibility is that the computing power of Deep Blue exceeded the complexity of the game, and thus its massive power wasn't really put to use. Consider Tic-Tac-Toe for instance. No matter how powerful a computer is, I can guarantee it'll never beat me. The game is just too simple.
