I had the fantastic opportunity to give a talk about the history of chess computation before a showing of the indie film Computer Chess. This was done in collaboration with Science on Screen, a series that hosts lectures related to a topic before a science-themed movie.
For those interested, the slides from the talk can be found below:
The Science on Screen series has been putting up all their lectures on YouTube and you should definitely check those out as well! I’m certain mine will be posted there in the coming weeks as well. I’ll update this post here with the video when it becomes available.
Thanks so much for Mikayla Nicholson from the Pickform Film Center in Bellingham, Washington for inviting me to do the talk. It was a lot of fun to research!
If you’re looking for a friendly game of chess to play against me, feel free to add me as a friend on Lichess!
