(news) IBM seeks to map human brain

There's no mention of chess on the press releases I've seen but I was wondering about putting that much computer power to play chess:

The Blue Gene computer has a peak processing speed of at least 22.8 trillion floating point operations per second (22.8 teraflops) and will take up the floor space of about four refrigerators.

and

Now this old CNN article (1999) did have a reference to chess. That was before Blue Gene was built:

http://archives.cnn.com/1999/TECH/computing/12/07/big.blue.gene/

If the machine works as researchers think it will, chess masters ought to look out -- Blue Gene would be 1,000 times more powerful than the Deep Blue machine that defeated world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. It also would be some 2 million times more powerful than the current top-of-the-line desktops.
