Read the passage then answer the questions below:

In 1996 Kasparov competed against an (IBM) computer named Deep Blue. Deep Blue, operated by a team of IBM programmers, was capable of processing millions of chess positions per second. Applying this massive computational power, a technique of artificial intelligence known as brute force, Deep Blue won the first game of the match to become the first computer to defeat a world champion under regulation time controls. Kasparov subsequently defeated Deep Blue by a score of four games to two to win the match. A year later Kasparov accepted a rematch against an enhanced version of Deep Blue, a computer capable of processing 200 million chess positions per second. Although Kasparov won the first game, he was defeated in the six-game series 3.5 games to 2.5 games. However, generally speaking, Russia has to be proud of Gary Kasparov.
