Denso's shogi-playing robot to match wits with masters

TOKYO -- A shogi (Japanese chess)-playing robot developed by auto parts maker Denso will make its debut in this year's shogi master-versus-machine series.

     The third installment in the Denou-sen series will kick off March 15. The event is a team competition pitting five professional shogi players against five computer programs. Denso, which also makes industrial robots, has developed a shogi-playing robotic arm, dubbed Denoutekun, which will compete against the human masters in the five-match series.
