TNel: Earguy: Yeah, what happened?  Results/spoilers here.

Thanks but I could only make a bit over 1:30 that video was way over produced.  Jesus. It's like someone thought they were shooting a damn 300 movie with all the slow mo and sound effects.

I know, right?!

keypusher: spawn73: zzrhardy: If I learned anything from the robot vs human chess battles, it's that these circus acts are actually a robot and 20 man dev team making changes on the fly to counter the tactics of a single human.

I don't think that matters, as Kasparov plays at a level where the 20 humans aren't able to compete.

Kasparov lost to Deeper Blue nearly 20 years ago.  Top grandmasters don't play (public) matches with computers any more, because they would get stomped.

Sure they play. Noone wants to pay them for it though, like IBM did.
