In 1996, world chess champion Garry Kasparov played a highly publicized match against Deep Blue, an IBM supercomputer built to take down the world’s best players. Kasparov won the match 4-2, writing afterward about the inflexibility in the supercomputer's logic, joking that he thought he still had a “few years left.

He was wrong. One year later, an upgraded Deep Blue – capable of evaluating 200 million moves per second – won the rematch.

These chess matches are a fascinating example of the speed at which technology moves. It wasn’t that long ago that the first computers were limited to a few specific applications. By 1996, they were capable of outflanking one of the greatest chess players ever.

Today, they are fundamentally altering the way we live and work.
