Data, network, and information visualizations are increasingly popular tools in business, medicine, science, math, computer science, and the media. Here’s one that might interest those of you who enjoy chess.

From the VisualComplexity descripton of the site: “Thinking Machine 4 explores the invisible, elusive nature of thought. Play chess against a transparent intelligence, its evolving thought process visible on the board before you. The goal … is not to make an expert chess playing program but to lay bare the complex thinking that underlies all strategic thought.” Try a game against the Thinking Machine to see it for yourself.
