Thinking Machine 4

Ένας εκπληκτικά εντυπωσιακός τρόπος να δει κανείς την ταχύτητα και το βάθος "σκέψης" ενός ηλεκτρονικού υπολογιστή.

Thinking Machine 4 explores the invisible, elusive nature of thought. Play chess against a transparent intelligence, its evolving thought process visible on the board before you.

The artwork is an artificial intelligence program, ready to play chess with the viewer. If the viewer confronts the program, the computer's thought process is sketched on screen as it plays. A map is created from the traces of literally thousands of possible futures as the program tries to decide its best move. Those traces become a key to the invisible lines of force in the game as well as a window into the spirit of a thinking machine.

Play the game.
