The new book (May 2017) of Garry Kasparov - widely considered the greatest chess player that ever lived. He is also a writer and political activist and a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal.
Garry Kasparov's 1997 chess match against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue was a watershed moment in the history of technology. It was the dawn of a new era in artificial intelligence: a machine capable of beating the reigning human champion at this most cerebral game.
That moment was more than a century in the making, and in this breakthrough book, Kasparov reveals his astonishing side of the story for the first time. He describes how it felt to strategize against an implacable, untiring opponent with the whole world watching, and recounts the history of machine intelligence through the microcosm of chess, considered by generations of scientific pioneers to be a key to unlocking the secrets of human and machine cognition.
Garry takes on the key economic issues of our time: how we can thrive as humans in a world of thinking machines. This important and optimistic book what we as humans are uniquely qualified fto do. Instead of wringing our hands about robots, we should read this book and embrace the future.
Garry’s perspectives on AI are borne of personal experience – and despite that are optimistic, wise and compelling. Its one thing for the giants of silicon Valley to tell us our future is bright; it is another thing to hear it from a man who squared off with the world’s most powerful computer , with the whole world watching, and his very identity at stake….
From the man at the epicentre of one of the 10 defining moments of the 20th Century, a fascinating and insightful overview of how computers came to surpass humans at chess, and what it means for mankind.
Kasparov uses his unrivaled experience to look into the future of intelligent machines and sees it bright with possibility. As many critics decry artificial intelligence as a menace, particularly to human jobs, Kasparov shows how humanity can rise to new heights with the help of our most extraordinary creations, rather than fear them. Deep Thinking is a tightly argued case for technological progress, from the man who stood at its precipice with his own career at stake.
