Item # 688386

May 12, 1997

LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 12, 1997

* AI takes a giant leap forward
* IBM's supercomputer "Deep Blue" defeats Garry Kasparov
* First computer victory in match vs. a world chess champion


The front-page has the historic reporting of the 1st time a computer defeated a world chess champion in chess: "It's Kasparov Who's Blue After Defeat", with subheading: "World champion accuses IBM of targeting him after he loses $1.1-million match to computer, with a corresponding photo showing Kasparov with his head buried in in hands. The article continues on an inside page. Nice to have such a notable event in a major-city newspaper.
All major sections are included and are in good condition.
Note: This event was covered in the documentary: Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine
