Deep Blue was a successor to two earlier computer chess projects dating from 1985 (ChipTest and then Deep Thought). Deep Blue was developed and designed at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in New York, USA. Deep Blue played two matches against the World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov. In the first match, in Philadelphia in 1996, Deep Blue won a game but lost the match. In the second match, in New York in 1997, Deep Blue made history by defeating Kasparov, the first time a computer had defeated a reigning world champion at standard time controls. Deep Blue mainly used brute force computing, calculating 200 million positions per second to a depth of many moves.
