And who completely hack you. And then put his hands up and say no foul no foul with GEICO. It's easy to switch switch and save on car insurance no need to fake. An ankle sprain. Because you're absolutely exhausted. So switching save with GYCO. It's almost better than sports. I'm Brooke shooter. America's number one gossip columnist.

Scientists have turned to chest tests computers abilities since the game is challenging Alan Djing but has defined rules. The link between machines and chest goes all the way back to the eighteenth century. When Hungarian inventor Wolfgang von Kimberlin it created the Turk a fake test playing machine that was actually operated by a human hiding inside of it by the nineteen fifties scientists? Were putting more more serious efforts into researching computer chess playing tests computers associated numerical values with the positions of each chess piece using a formula called an evaluation function. The computers use those values to determine the best move to make after years of researchers developing test-playing hardware. Good where computers were still not able to be human tests players but advances and custom chip technology eventually allowed computers to do faster and and deeper searching in nineteen eighty-five a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University named Fung Shue began working on a test. Clang machine called chip test after test came deep thought. Another computer made to play chess shoe along with some of his classmates worked on the team. Team that developed deep thought deep thought process seven hundred twenty thousand moves per second. It was the first computer to beat a grandmaster in a regular tournament. Game it also won the nineteen eighty nine world computer chess championship.

That confused Casper off the match got a lot of media attention and put high powered computing on the world. Stage though deeply was eventually retired. It inspired inspired later computers and researchers applied its architecture to financial modeling data mining and Molecular Dynamics years after the nineteen ninety seven match one of the computer. Scientists who designed deep blue. Murray Campbell said the infamous unexpected move. The computer made was the the result of a book in the computer software.
