Did deep blue vs kasparov create a false paradigm of computer superiority?

  • #1

    I believe the deep blue matches were fraudulent (changing engine mid match, human intervention etc), propelling computers into a superior position before they had truly arrived to that position.  Once players believe they cannot win, that becomes a self fulfilling outcome.  If you believe you can't win, you won't win!  They say humans only use a fraction of the brains potential, so if there is untapped potential, wouldn't that give hope that we can play better than we have heretofore?

     

    Remember, they said a 4 minute mile was impossible, but once that barrier was broken, soon after multiple humans achieved the same feat!

    Since there are now engines that you can download free that can whip your _, Deep Blue is irrelevant now.

    Why people keep discussing and debating something that happened years ago is beyond me. Who cares? Try to live now, okay?

    The answer to the forum question is "no"

    is it possible to rebuild that deep blue and have another blue v kasparov match?

  • #6

    probably not

    the real question is, are we gonna see a carlsen v komodo...

    carlsen vs deep junior!

  • #8
    Carlsen would have no chance against Komodo.

    You've heard of Moore's Law and there have been a number of 18 month cycles since the match.  Silicon brains are smarter than carbon brains now, but carbon brains have one last thing going for them; unpredictable irrationality.
