As we sharpen our Sharpies, we might recall that it was on this date in 1996 that Grand Master and world champion Gary Kasparov took the sixth and final game to win his chess match against IBM’s Deep Blue computer.  Humanity’s triumph was short-lived:  Deep Blue defeated Kasparov in a rematch the following year, and has been winning ever since.  Indeed, Deep Blue’s younger cousin, Watson, the Jeopardy-winning AI, has gone into medical practice.
