Computer Chess Cartoon

15110365_10154881390939742_3579770883508270243_o Here’s a chess cartoon I once made. I am posting it in honor of the great chess champion Magnus Carlsen’s recent victory. Anyone get it?

    I think I get it and I’m not even a chess player. The “winning” computer and the losing computer have each forecast the moves without actually moving a piece.

    The trouble is that no one — not even today’s supercomputers — knows whether you should have drawn this with the White player announcing checkmate instead!

      True. I was thinking about that. I like the visual feel of one computer declaring preemptive checkmate, but for accuracy I am thinking of revising it to both declaring preemptive checkmate at the same time.

    It should be White announcing checkmate. If both computers played the most exact chess in history, the best black could hope for is a draw, because white holds the initiative from the first move (and likely wouldn’t lose it)
