Chess as the Drosophila of Ai

  title={Chess as the Drosophila of Ai},
  author={John McCarthy}
This is a condensed version of an invited presentation, delivered on May 31, 1989 to the Conference of the Canadian Information Processing Society on its meeting on May 29 to June 2, 1989 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The article was mainly written by the editors of the ICCA journal, based on their notes on my lecture. The lively style is theirs. However, I added considerable material that appeared only in the printed version.
