Garry Kasparov: Future of AI

Garry Kasparov: Future of AI

Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 12:00 PM
Marines' Memorial Theatre, Second Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco

Garry Kasparov, Chairman, Human Rights Foundation; Former World Chess Champion; Author, Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins.
In Conversation with Holly Kernan, Vice President of News, KQED.

In May 1997, the world watched as Garry Kasparov, the greatest chess player in the world, was defeated for the first time by the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue. Kasparov's competition symbolized man’s fight against machine, yet years after losing to Deep Blue, he has come to see how humans and machines can partner to reach results that neither can attain alone. Come join us for a conversation about what it was like to strategize against a supercomputer—and how a world increasingly reliant on artificial intelligence can potentially overcome new challenges.
