Kotok-Mc Carthy - Influence

Influence

In 1967 Mac Hack VI by Richard Greenblatt with Donald E. Eastlake III became an honorary member of the United States Chess Federation when a person lost to it in tournament play in Massachusetts. Sadly, Kronrod lost his directorship at ITEP and his professorship because of complaints from physics users that ITEP mathematics resources were being used for gaming. Mikhail Donskoy, Arlazarov and Uskov developed the ITEP program into Kaissa at the Institute of Control Sciences and in 1974, it became the world computer chess champion. Debate continues some forty years after the first test, about whether the Shannon Type A brute force approach, used by ITEP, is superior to the Type B selective strategy, used by Kotok-McCarthy.

Famous quotes containing the word influence:

    Modern Western thought will pass into history and be incorporated in it, will have its influence and its place, just as our body will pass into the composition of grass, of sheep, of cutlets, and of men. We do not like that kind of immortality, but what is to be done about it?
    Alexander Herzen (1812–1870)

    I anticipate with pleasing expectations that retreat in which I promise myself to realize, without alloy, the sweet enjoyment of partaking, in the midst of my fellow citizens, the benign influence of good laws under a free government, the ever favorite object of my heart, and the happy reward, as I trust, of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers.
    George Washington (1732–1799)

    Books, the oldest and the best, stand naturally and rightfully on the shelves of every cottage. They have no cause of their own to plead, but while they enlighten and sustain the reader his common sense will not refuse them. Their authors are a natural and irresistible aristocracy in every society, and, more than kings or emperors, exert an influence on mankind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
