It was called “the most spectacular chess event in history.” But according to the man who played the machine – chess champ Garry Kasparov, who played and lost to IBM's Deep Blue chess computer in 1997 -- that experience paled when compared to another match he played in 2003 against the Israeli-developed Deep Junior chess program.
Deep Junior continues to rack up victories, mowing down the chess competition -- human and binary. In November 2011, the program racked up its seventh World Computer Chess Championship award, presented by the International Computer Games Association.
