Solved

“What it does is push the boundary and give a vivid demonstration of what computing technologies can do.” – Jonathan Schaeffer, Head of the Chinook program to solve checkers

Red versus black

Each piece equal in limitations
and skill, a utopian battle
solved by the machines
therefore making
the real possibility
of real war
nearly palatable.
What dangers we welcome as we
forget
the lessons
taught to us
by Matthew Broderick, setting
the computer against
itself and letting it run,
bloodless
fingers on keys, wiped clean
of errors
in thought, and in decision making.
