THE MORALS OF CHESS BY BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (1750)
The game of Chess is not merely an idle amusement. Several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired or strengthened by it, so as to become habits, ready on all occasions.

Moxon’s Master – Automaton Chessplayer
This story may have been inspired by Wolfgang von Kempelen’s remarkable mechanical chess player, which was created in 1770. Incredibly, it beat a number of chess experts in public matches. However, the real genius behind the automaton chess player was an assistant concealed inside the cabinet. This famous story was written by Ambrose Bierce in 1910. In it, you encounter the first chess playing automaton – a fully automated chess machine. You also first encounter the problems that humans have when they face superior machines.
