Robot pwns man at chess (again), nudges us closer to robot age (again)

While not as legendary as Kasparov vs Deep Blue, another man vs machine duel has taken place in Bonn, Germany this past week. Deep Fritz (because he’s German, get it? Fritz? German?), created by German company ChessBase, has beaten chess world champion Vladimir Kramnik 4-2. Kramnik played against Fritz 4 years ago in Bahrain, where he was able to play the computer to a 4-4 draw. Future historians will note that day as humanity’s last stand, as we will surely be pwned from here on in.

That’s your future master up there in the pic. He sure don’t look pretty, but he’ll beat your ass silly…in chess.
