This syndrome was never more evident than after the Deeper-Blue victory over Kasparov. Then as now it was mostly non-programmers who were jealous -- mostly natives of Europe, whose PC chess programs were the strongest on that platform at the time. So when the great prize of defeating the world champion went instead to an iconic capitalist American corporation, it made for a perfect storm of jealousy. Endless threads of DBII trashing continued for many years afterward.
Dont know what protest against out-psyching a naive World Champion by a greedy company should be anything near to jealousy.
It is one point that it was the beginning of a new epoche when humans could no longer hope for a safe win over machines, but the concrete show act would never have been the right moment yet. Kasparov could have won if he
1) had not accepted the imposte PR before the event (hoax1)
2) had supervised the match conditions (hoax2)
3) had firmly asked for a minimum of 20 gamescores of the DB2 chess so that he knew at least a bit of the improved setting (hoax3)
4) had used advisors who had a minimal idea of the overall twisted attitude of sports life in the USA when a national event is always impostered as another World Championship, see baseball with two or three nations at the start or American Football which is only played in the US, plus the mental precondition of winning by all means against all known rules of fair play; here en plus the absurdity that scientists with an alleged research project who needed a human top player, invited him, faked good respect and then shocked him with impoliteness, what was already enough to confuse a superstitious guy like Kasparov(hoax4)
5) had fixed a priori how the machine output was observed by a Kasparov team member too, and was to be gotten in real time at the instant whithout any manipulation (hoax5)
Let's make a fair conclusion, all the hoax, all the unfairness, the absurd psychology of the whole event, cant change the trivial truth. Without it IBM wouldnt have thrown such a sum of money out of their window. Cheated or not, Kasparov got enough money for playing the naive victim. The scenario was originally developped in boxing where outright fraud is part of the whole deal. Also here the unique variation for the USA called wrestling. If you watch this you have a direct insight into American sports and business rules. Apparently all this was unknown to Kasparov. But I cannot decide if he's just the victim or did he play this for a huge sum of money. Ok, my choice is, he's on the money, the rest is - Stanislavski.
