Deep Blue was a chess-playing computer developed by IBM, the first machine ever to beat a human champion, Russian chess player Garry Kasparov, in 1997. Deep Blue is seen in the episode "Anthology of Interest I" as the summer intern of Al Gore's Vice Presidential Action Rangers. This seems to imply that Deep Blue received several more upgrades following 1997 and before 1999, which resulted in it being endowed with a crude artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, it appears that Deep Blue's VLSI chess circuits were never removed, thus resulting in its actions always being phrased in chess notation. It had no trouble playing other games like Dungeons & Dragons, though.

It seems to be alive in the 31st century as it can be seen in the Wheel of Robots.
