Man vs. machine

March 19, 2007 8:21am CST
What do you think, has any chance the man against the computer now? I think he has not any more. The last match (Kramnik - Fritz 10) ended with a clear win of the computer, 4-2. And the Fritz software run on an absolutely average computer configuraton. An other match was in 1995, Hydra vs. Michael Adams. That time the software run on brutal computer, 32GB RAM, 64 processors. The result was shocking, 5,5-0,5 for the machine. So it is the computer-age in chess.

I think man still have a chance on the computer but the computer stays fit while a man get tired so it's still possible to win a game but on more games the computer has the advantage not to get tired ,a great advantage.

never is a man inferior to a machine...b'cos he is the one who developed the software..b'cos that a machine wins in a chess match it is not to be accepted machines have taken over chess...
