Surprising: ChatGPT playing chess

by Johannes Fischer
2/14/2023 – In November 2022, the OpenAI company released ChatbotGPT and since then, this programme has been making headlines. It can write poems and stories, reports, articles, computer code and much more. It will, experts seem to agree, change the world. Apparently, the chatbot has now tried its hand at chess. On YouTube, the well-known streamer Levy "Gotham Chess" Rozman presents a game that ChatGPT allegedly played against the programme Stockfish. A game in which ChatGTP repeatedly amazes with surprising moves and never-before-seen manoeuvres.
