Can you write a code to detect chess diagrams in a chess book of PDF format and save it in the form of an image?

Essentially, chess is as close to being “solved” as it’s likely to pragmatically become. we now have chess-playing computers that can consistently beat every human player. The last time humans were able to beat the top computers was 2005. That’s an interesting commentary on the nature of the game, and of artificial intelligence, but it doesn’t make the top players any less skilled, or make people who are interested any less interested. Now, if it were ‘solved’ in the sense of creating a single algorithm that would allow you to win every game, as long as you went first, and if that algorithm could be memorized by a human being, then that would make chess boring. Tic tac toe, for example, has already been solved, in that sense, with an algorithm that XKCD presented in a single graphic. Now, a human being could memorize those steps, and win every tic tac toe game that it was possible to win (and never, ever lose). And, guess what? Tic tac toe is boring. In a game between two competent players, it will always end in a draw. If there were a system that people could internalize, and which would either result in universal stalemates, or in the first person to make a move always winning, then chess would become painfully boring, and people would lose interest. All the top people would be those who’d learned the solution and so the outcome of every game would be predetermined. But, of course, that’s not possible, and is unlikely to ever be possible. The game is complex enough that strategies, principles, techniques, and even certain move combinations can be learned, but it’s up to each player figure out how to use those on the fly. That means that chess between human beings will always be competitive. Even if a perfect solution can be found, it will require a computer to hold it, meaning that games between humans will not be affected, anymore than foot races were affected by the invention of the automobile.
