This is the first in a series of articles that considers the ongoing struggle between humans and computers for chess dominance. The author is a statistician who has been analyzing this relationship for several years, and he argues that computers may never surpass humans. In addition to supporting his argument with empirical evidence, he provides a link to his Web site that includes much more data and historical trends. Another article on the Chessbase Web site describes the November 2003 championship between chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov and the X3D PC, and alludes to the completely virtual reality floating chessboard that will be used. Many related articles about chess computers are also featured on the site.
