Psychology definitely played a large role in that match. "wasn't very strong" yet it blew away every program 10 years ago. Sort of a "self-contradi...

Re: 10th aniversery of deep blue win: interesting news artic

No, that is not what I'm saying at all. I'm saying given time the GM would adapt his or hers play accordingly, which would fit computer play at the expense of his/her human training.

Suppose I hadn't done it (and it's certainly against my rebellious nature to comply to demands) and this fact would have become public knowledge when I entered the commercial market as it happened back then abou...

Re: Sergei Markow about Strelka

Thanks very much Werner, from the very first time I've heard of the allegations that Strelka was a Rybka clone I didn't believe any of it.
