### AI Blitz⚡ 6 is all about chess! 5 AI puzzles, 3 weeks, $400 prize pool! Chess and AI have an old friendship. One of the goals of early computer scientists was to create a chess-playing machine. In 1997, Deep Blue, a chess-playing computer, made history by defeating reigning World Champion Garry Kasparov in a match. The intertwined relation of chess and AI has influenced significant innovation in both these fields. This is why we decided that AI Blitz #6 will be all about Chess and AI! Don’t worry, you don't need to be a pro chessplayer to tackle these AI puzzles. We will provide you with the necessary tools and resources to tackle every single challenge. Chess is a strategy game involving no hidden information. It is played on a square chessboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. Both the players get control over sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops and eight pawns. Each of these pieces has a specific set of moves. The game’s object is to checkmate the opponent's king, whereby the king is under immediate attack.
