From Wired News:
Computers may have gotten better at chess, but human players can still find chinks in their defense, the world chess champion says. Just don’t try to break them down psychologically.
Ever since IBM’s Deep Blue beat Garry Kasparov — retired champion and reputedly the best player ever — in 1997, humans have failed to regain dominance over increasingly powerful computers.
But according to Veselin Topalov, a 30-year-old Bulgarian who dominated the world chess organization championship in October, people still have a small chance to hold their own.
