Actually it happened already. I guess it was around 1980, a guy who barely knew
how to move the pieces created a program that took a good place (or even won) in
the World Computer Chess Championship.

Maybe Bob remembers. I seem to remember the guy was canadian. The name of his
program was maybe Chaos or something like that.
