"The last time I was surprised by the strength of the machine. This time I know what to expect... I mustn't take the match too lightly"


"Unlike Fritz, I cannot do ( process ) millions of moves per second. I would be very happy with one move per second. But humans have an advantage over the computer mostly on strategical points of the game and therefore we can make long-term strategies much better than computers."


"Don't worry, kids. You'll find work. After all, my machine will need strong chess player-programmers. You will be the first."  Botvinick said to Karpov and  other students in 1963, regarding his computer chess program which he claimed would eventually defeat the world champion.


" I just think we should look at this as a chess match," he said, "between the world's greatest chess player and Garry Kasparov. "
