The Origins of the Database with Frederic Friedel


by Arne Kaehler

10/2/2020 – Some might think that ChessBase was the inventor of the chess database. That is true to some degree, but there is a predecessor, and Frederic Friedel was a part of it. In the video we talk about one of the very first commercially available chess database systems, called “Intelligent Chess”, and we opened our little ChessBase museum to present to you, the original prototype including a database on audio cassette.
