The 10 Year Aniversary of Humanity's First Defeat

IBM Still keeps the commentary on file of this, the final match between their research project and the finest chess player humanity had to offer. At 3PM EST today we mark the 10th year since the beginning of the end for humanity when a few racks of cold circuits bested the best weapon we have, the human mind.

To reminisce check out the site, and take heed that the programs have only gotten better. Deep Fritz has since continued to refine the chess AI state of the art, and can now defeat our master players using a simple 8 processor server.
