5.0 out of 5 stars This book teaches you about computer chess from the '50s+, 4 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Kasparov versus Deep Blue: Computer Chess Comes of Age (Hardcover)
This book teaches you about how computer "scientists" have tried to make a program that can beat the world's best chess player. It talks about programs from the '50s to '90s with moves and diagrams about the games. It has pictures of the authors of the programs such as Robert Hyatt programmer of Cray Blitz or Dave Kittinger author of WChess. It is highly detailed and shows you how a computer chess program plays. If you get this book be prepared for a real lesson on computer chess. You'd be surprised how chess programs have gone from losing to a complete beginner to beating a world champion!
