this only means technology will change humans the battle between cheaters and technology will continue forever i guess but that will never spoil the fun for me to play a nice game of chess, and chess changed now into many new chessformats so we only got more chessgames we can play .
I like 960 chess for example thats hard to beat with technology
Engines can handle 960 chess as if it were any other chess position.
B fisher said a lot but kasparov played vs computers so if anyone could say something about that its him or try kramnik who played vs deep fritz in 2006 and lost 2 vs 4
but does a computer kill chess? i dont think it does it only can be very frustrating to loose from a machine.
but as computers develop new skills they still are invented by humans.
it could be that humans can be reinvented now themselves too ! science changes the world so now we got strong computers but soon we can have humans wearing upgrades connected to their brains too! or we even can change genes. where it leads?i guess noone can tell. in the future will human still be human or maybe cyborgs?

so if humans change will chess change?
I liked reading your comment and I agree, times change just like how the world changes it seems. People reinvent themselves also. Yet professionals would call it schizophrenia. I happen to believe we are all born into schizophrenia naturally and it just seems to show up in us naturally as we grow from immaturity to maturity. Chess I think is no different, because Bobby Fischer was the first person in history to change the way the game can be played. Now if I am wrong about that, I can own up to it if somebody is able to show me the proof, but as far as I can tell, I believe I am right about that. He may have hated Jewish people, or even come to have a seeming hatred for the USA (or some may have seen it that way), but I also believe that his hatred wasn't for the country its self, but for the leaders of the American government. He practiced his first amendment right and spoke honestly about what he believed. What happened? His own government sought to treat him like he was some kind of felon when he never even committed any crime when he practiced his first amendment right and seemed to want to put him on trial as though he was some kind of threat to the safety of the country.
How does anyone who wasn't there in Iceland actually know for sure if he was telling the truth or lieing when he said he believed that the Russians were trying to trying to listen in on him through the fillings in his teeth? They tried using their own tactics as well by saying that Fischer "planted" something in Spassky's chair. So, they are not innocent either. Fischer played to win in the 1972 championship.... and win he did.
Now on the topic of people becoming biomechanical or transhuman and all that bs, it is and always will be predicated that if a human becomes anything like a cyborg, it is because they made the conscious choice to willingly become that way, thus giving up not only their physical freedom and liberty, but their spirtual freedom and liberty as well.
Will technology ruin the game of chess?
Yes, they will.
It has ruined the game of chess, the same way it has cause so many problems with true, real, live acoustic music performance. In a way, music was messed up first. It is to the point where most popular songs must have "vocoded" vocals, that is a computer tunes the humans singing voice while they are singing. Sometimes they even allow you to hear the digital vocoding like Sher did. It is sad.
