Man Versus Machine: The Silicon Graphics World Checkers Championship

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Technical report TR92-19. In August 1992, the first man versus machine world championship took place. The champion, Dr. Marion Tinsley, is arguably the greatest checkers player that ever lived. The challenger was the computer checkers program Chinook, a 3 year team effort from the University of Alberta. This article is an anecdotal recounting of the Chinook-Tinsley match for the World Checkers Championship, as seen from my point of view. | TRID-ID TR92-19
