One of the greatest chess players in history, Garry Kasparov, was defeated by IBM’s Deep Blue AI back in 1997. If you now think he must be upset about machines becoming more and more capable of learning and understanding, you’re wrong. Our video feature today is a recent TED Talk by Kasparov himself, reflecting on machines in the past and why we should embrace to coexist with machines rather than being afraid of the future. Highly interesting!
