David Slate (l) and Larry Atkin are shown here at the North American Computer Chess Tournament in 1975 with their program called Chess. The use of efficient search strategies, such as “iterative deepening with hash tables,” running on a supercomputer, allowed them to dominate computer chess tournaments throughout the 1970s.
