approach, we keep an ear to the ground for interesting examples that illuminate new techniques or validate our approach in some empirical way. One of the areas that we’re interested is in the overall friction of analysis systems. The systems that we build are built on commodity hardware — we’re not building faster computers and yet we can deliver orders-of-magnitude better performance on analysis tasks than existing solutions. How do we do this? By building software in such a way that it reduces the friction experienced at the boundaries between the computing power, the analyst, and the source data. Chess ...
The Elo system was invented as an improved chess rating system, but today it is also used in many other games. It is also used as a rating system for multiplayer competition in a number of computer games , and has been adapted to team sports including association football , American college football and basketball, and Major League Baseball .

The Chess Master and the Computer | The New York Review of Books
In 1985, in Hamburg, I played against thirty-two different chess computers at the same time in what is known as a simultaneous exhibition. I walked from one machine to the next, making my moves over a period of more than five hours. The four leading chess computer manufacturers had sent their top models, including eight named after me from the electronics firm Saitek. It illustrates the state of computer chess at the time that it didn't come as much of a surprise when I achieved a perfect 32–0 score, winning every game, although there was an uncomfortable moment. At one point I realized that I was drifting into trouble in a ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The making of a chess machine - Watnic01 Server Home
Lightning speed and human, rather than machine, intelligence gave IBM's chess-playing computer the ability to compete against world chess champion Garry Kasparov. The lessons learned in designing the machine may help future computers tackle a variety of tasks, such as complex search problems or aiding in the synthesis of new drugs. In Brief: How did Deep Blue, IBM's chess-playing computer, manage to compete so vigorously against world chess champion Garry Kasparov last February? Its "brute force" approach was a sophisticated product of the design team's combination of chess, hardware and software ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

International alliances for quantitative modeling in systems biology
Creating comprehensive models that can predict cellular behaviors is one of the major goals of systems biology. This requires the integration of experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches. Molecular interactions have to be precisely described in mathematical formula that reflects the right level of abstraction suitable for specific biology, and the necessary parameters, such as initial concentration of each component and kinetic constants, have to be estimated from a set of experiments. Although abundant experimental data and published articles are available, creating a quality model by assembling these resources is ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How does Deep Blue work ? - Yahoo! Answers
Deep Blue was the first computer system to win a chess game against a reigning world champion (Garry Kasparov) under regular time controls. This first win occurred on February 10, 1996, and Deep Blue - Kasparov, 1996, Game 1 is a famous chess game. However, Kasparov won 3 games and drew 2 of the following games, beating Deep Blue by a score of 4-2. Deep Blue was then heavily upgraded (unofficially nicknamed "Deeper Blue") and played Kasparov again in May 1997, winning the six-game rematch 3.5-2.5, ending on May 11th. The final game is at Deep Blue - Kasparov, 1997, Game 6. Deep Blue thus became the first computer system to ...
Google Answers: Computer Chess
If the world's best computer chess program plays against itself, will the advantage of having the first move allow white to win? Or will every game be a draw? White will not always win; indeed, sometimes Black will win. White would win more often than Black, however. Even though one might think that a draw would be the inevitable result, given that both sides in such a contest are ipso facto of equal strength, in fact this is not the case. Typically computer programs work by searching to some fixed depth, then using heuristics to extend the depth to which they search by a certain amount, and then finally using ...
