Kasparov got tired. Deep Blue never did.
Garry Kasparov's high-profile games against IBM's Deep Blue in
and Deeper Blue in 1997
were touted by the media as the ultimate contest between man and
machine, raw processing power versus strategy and skill.
Kasparov was given the sacred task of defending mankind's honor
against the machine's cold, calculating march. The chess match
was considered to be a test of human dominance in terms of intelligence.
Appropriately enough, Newsweek magazine's cover story was titled
"The Brain's Last Stand."
The Russian chess grandmaster won the 1996 game 4-2, but lost
the 1997 game 3.5-2.5 after an early game six blunder cost him
dearly. He has never fully explained that gaffe to this day, although
he did admit the game's long stretches eventually wore him out.
This project will cover the growing media and pop culture fascination
with "AI," or "artificial intelligence." Moore's
Law and the Turing Test are two important scientific laws and
postulations that form the foundation for AI studies. You can't
have one without the other, they must both simultaneously co-exist
at the same time.
To help visualize the technobabble inherent in the Turing
Test and Moore's Law,
I will give plot synopses of "Terminator"s 1
and 2, "AI:
Artificial Intelligence," "2001: A
Space Odyssey," and "Blade Runner".
