[Reflections] IBM's Deep Blue Defeats World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov in Chess

Back in 1997, the headline says that the World Chess champion Gary Kasparov (the expert) was beaten by IBM's Deep Blue (a computer).

But more importantly we should realize that it was not the computer who beat Kasparov in their match up in that point in time but rather, the summation of the knowledge learned and effort poured by IBM's groups of researchers/developers since Deep Blue's early development in the 1940s.

In essence, the match in 1997 was actually a battle between an individual person - Gary Kasparov vs the team behind Deep Blue from 1940s-1997 (50+ years) w/c was only represented systematically by the Computer.

When framed in that perspective, it actually just made sense that Kasparov lost.
