Artificial intelligence has shown what it can do when facing off against humans in ancient board games, with Deep Blue and Alpha Go already proving their worth on the world stage. While computers playing chess is nothing new, a new online version of the ancient game lifts the veil of AI to let players see what the AI is thinking. You make your move and then see the computer comes to life, calculating thousands of possible counter moves – but if you are terrible at chess to begin with, it probably won't help you much. Thinking Machine 6 is the latest in a line of AI-based concept art, with the third version a permanent installation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Created by computer scientist and artist Martin Wattenberg and Marek Walczak, the last three versions have been taken online, with contributions from Johanna Kindvall and Fernanda Viégas.
