Copy of Scientific American, 215, with article as published.

Later correspondence regarding the inclusion of the article in Scientific American Reader on Computers and Computation.

Strachey described this as 'a popular article ... it describes, amongst other things, a draughts-playing program'. Strachey found difficulty in writing, and in adequately illustrating, the article, of which many drafts, revisions and alternatives survive in the folders both of working papers and editorial correspondence.
