Abstract:

This book offers a detailed account of IBM's Deep Blue chess program, the people who created it, and its historic battles with World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov, who challenged the AI principles of the technology with human intelligence. It examines the progress made by its creators beginning with its 1989 two-game match with Kasparov through its stunning 1997 victory over him. The heroes are IBM researchers Feng-hsiung Hsu, Murray Campbell, and Joe Hoane, along with team leader Chung-Jen Tan and International Grandmaster Joel Benjamin. "IBM's Deep Blue: A Technological Triumph" chronicles one of the great technology achievements of the 20th Century. It established a point in history when mankind's exciting new tool, the computer, came of age and competed with its human creators in the unltimate intellectual competition, the game of chess. This book will serve as the premier story documenting that achievement and a milestone in the development of artificial intelligence.
