Games from the ACM Tournaments

  • David Levy


Every year since 1970, the Association for Computing Machinery (acm) has held a computer chess tournament as part of its annual conference. The 1970 event was organised by Monroe Newborn and Kenneth King of Columbia University. It was the first time that a chess tournament had taken place in which all the contestants were computer programs. The event was such a success that it immediately became a regular fixture at the acm annual conference, and the following year I was invited to be tournament director and commentator at the tournament — a role I held for 10 successive years.
