Deep Blue goes to Smithsonian

One of the two towers that made up Deep Blue, the supercomputer that beat chess master Garry Kasparov in a touted match in 1997, will become part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution's "Information Age: People, Information and Technology."

The computer, which contained 480 specialized "chess chips" that allowed it to analyze 200 million chess positions a second, was the first machine to beat a reigning world champion chess player. Earlier this month, world champion Vladimir Kramnik drew a match with Deep Fritz, a German-developed machine that analyzed 3.5 million moves a second.
