|Jul-16-10|| ||TheFocus: I once dreamed that I would one day become a Grandmaster.|
But that dream did not come true, so I dreamed of becoming an International master.
Didn't happen, so I dreamed of just becoming a Master.
Ditto, so I tried to become an Expert.
Something was lacking, so I dreamed of being just a Class I.
Guess what? Nada.
So on and on, until I dreamed of just getting a Class WXYZ rating.
Then I woke up and found out that I had wet the bed.

I wholeheartly agree!

|Jun-09-12|| ||PinnedPiece: One ponders why the Deep Thought page at CHessgames has only four pages of thoughts.|
What makes a thought deep? Is a deep thing desired? A deep valley makes travel difficult, and can separate things...

What makes a thought deep? The deepest parts of the ocean are lifeless, oxygen-deprived, canyons of eternal darkness.

What makes a thought deep? If you probe into the deepest, furthest recesses of man's physical brain, you enter his reptilian zone.

What makes a thought deep? The most common phrase in English for being in a deep place is actually rather unpleasant and foul-smelling: I'm in deep d_ _ d_ _ now!

What makes a thought deep? When we view deep space, we are looking at energy that has taken years or thousands of years to reach us. Does a deep thought take years to appear?

What makes a thought deep for a computer? It has piled lots of calls on a recursion stack, and as often as not, if you are not careful, you crash.

Perhaps deep thinking for me just means pondering questions I can't answer?

|Nov-05-12|| ||rapidcitychess: So if we are all nonexistent, and imagining everything, then how did you just tell my that I am imagining everything? Do I know I am imagining things, but I don't actually know?|
|Jul-02-13|| ||whiteshark: And now something completely off-topic:
"<Deep Thought> was a computer chess machine built at Carnegie-Mellon University in the 1980's. It was a predecessor to Deep Blue, the chess machine that defeated Garry Kasparov in a match. Neither machine exists at this time.
<Andreas Nowatzyk> was one of the contributors to the Deep Thought project while he was in grad school. A few years ago when he and I [<Tim Mann>] were both working for Compaq's research labs in Palo Alto, Andreas sent me a copy of Deep Thought's evaluation function tuning program and asked me to put it on the Web for him, since he no longer has an interest in computer chess. http://www.tim-mann.org/deepthought...
If you are interested in this material, you can download it here. Please don't ask me questions about it; I had nothing to do with developing it, and I don't have any information beyond what is on this page.
Explanation written by Andreas Nowatzyk in January 2000. http://www.tim-mann.org/DT_eval_tun...

God only knows.
|Oct-12-15|| ||Esauwept: I can't find the supposedly well-annotated games between Kasparov and Deep Blue computer. Does anyone know what game collection they are in? Many thanks|

|Oct-12-15|| ||King Radio: The Pandolfini book on the match is pretty good, and it's pretty cheap.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||TheTamale: I used to think Deep Thought was an incredible machine. Then I noticed something missing... an utter paucity of 10-move demolitions of NN. Deep Thought might be a strong player, but it's no Greco.|
|Nov-04-17|| ||perfidious: In the US Open held at Boston 1988, I faced the silicon wretch and was put out at losing to it--in the very next round came the demolition job Deep Thought vs Igor Ivanov, 1988.|
