Some days ago in New York City, Garry Kasparov played what he called the first fair chess match between a man and a machine. It ended in a draw and was, as Kasparov saw it, a way of putting to rights the injustice he had felt during the famous chess match he played in 1997, as world champion, against the IBM computer Deep Blue. Kasparov lost then, a result he claimed had come about only through human intervention in the machine.
