Man vs. Machine on the Chess Board: Computers Victorious
Ed Felten declares computers the winner in the man vs. machine chess arena (Chess Computer Crushes Elite Human Player).
This may seem inevitable in hindsight, but for the longest time people insisted that human chess players had something special which computers could never duplicate. That was true, up to a point. ...
Chess computers have succeeded by ignoring what human chessplayers do best, and doing instead what computers do best. And what computers do best is to run programs written by very clever human programmers.
Hmmm ... sounds like another challenge for computing.
