Description: Thoughts on the Kasparov-Deep Blue match of 3 May 1997. Throughout history, people have been building machines that can perform tasks better than humans. When Kasparov, referring to his upcoming match, talks about "an area that defines human beings," I think first not of machines proving to be superior to humans but of our ability as people to build better and better machines, machines that can outperform us at certain tasks.
