I have always said that some day computers will be so good that they will be able to put all of the recorded games in their memory and be analyzed by player to determine who was indeed the best player of all time. 

It may even be that at some point in the future the human world championship will be determined by two players playing a dozen or so games and these games will be judged by a program not based on who actually won the game but on who played the highest quality of moves most often during the match. 

Who knows maybe all of the tournament games will be monitored in an ongoing basis and a new world champion could be declared in the middle of a tournament, in the middle of a game.

From the article:

...
My portal to the world of artificial intelligence is a narrow one: the more than 500-year-old game of chess. You may not care a whit about chess, long regarded as the ultimate intellectual sport, but the stunning developments coming out of the chess world during the past decade should still command your attention.

...

Then, in 1997, in what will surely be remembered as a historical milestone for modern man, IBM’s Deep Blue computer stunned the world by defeating the world champion, Garry Kasparov. Proud Kasparov, who was perhaps more stunned than anyone, was sure the IBM team had cheated. He sarcastically told reporters that he sensed “the hand of God” guiding his silicon opponent.

But the IBM team had not cheated. Rather, through a combination of ingenious software and massive parallel computing power, they had produced a silicon-based entity capable of such finesse and subtlety that international chess grandmasters worldwide were simply amazed.

Since 1997, the computers have only gotten better, to the point where computer programmers no longer find beating humans a great challenge. Everything changed like lightning. The machines can now even be set to imitate famous human players — including their flaws — so well, that only an expert eye (and sometimes only another computer!) can tell the difference.
