IBM's Deep Blue, 1997 Here is a timeline of some of the major events in computer chess.

In 1912, Leonardo Torres y Quevedo (1852-1936) built an electro-mechanical machine that could play King and Rook versus King endgames. It was called El Ajedrecista (the chessplayer). It was first demonstrated publicly in 1914 at the Paris World's Fair. It used a mechanical arm to make its moves, and electrical sensors to detect its opponent's replies in a King vs. King + Rook endgame. The writer of a Scientific American article on the device was worried that machinery might someday substitute for the human mind. In 1920, a second version of El Ajedrecista was constructed that eliminated the arm and moved the chess pieces via magnets under the board instead.

In 1922, the second version of El Ajedrecista was exhibited in Paris. In 1941, the German engineer and computer pioneer Konrad Zuse (1910-1995) developed the first computer chess-playing algorithm. In 1945, Alan M. In October 1948, Claude E. J. Computer Chess History, a lot of links inside - TalkChess.com.

The links from the wonderful chess programming wiki to archived SSDF lists is a good record of progress from 1995-2009. And although Rybka eclipsed everything, I don't want to forget Naum! Although the SSDF list has most of the strongest engines, there are still some notable ones missing, such as the ChessMaster series. Computer_chess:wiki:links - Computer Chess Wiki.

La máquina preservadora 3. Programas para PC Hemos visto en las anteriores entregas la variedad de ordenadores y sistemas operativos que imperaba en los años 80. Esto finalizó en los 90 con la irrupción del huracán PC que barrió las grandes marcas (Atari, Commodore, Amstrad) dejándolas en una posición de marginalidad. Para darse esta situación se unieron dos factores: 1º Los PC de IBM derivaron en los PC clónicos, lo que permitió abaratar costes, y con una arquitectura abierta. Permitió una proliferación/competencia de placas madre, tarjetas y periféricos que evolucionaron sin fin permitiendo cada vez más potencia a un coste más barato. 2º El sistema operativo para integrar todo este conglomerado lo puso Microsoft de Bill Gates.El método que usó fue el de ir incorporando capas al MSDos original para preservar la compatibilidad con los millones de programas y equipos diferentes, hasta el Windows XP.
