In a humorous and entertaining, but also thought-provoking, TED Talk, Gary Kasparov recounts his historic confrontation with IBM’s “Deep Blue” in 1997: the never-to-be-forgotten day when the world champion chess player was beaten at his own game by a computer.
Kasparov goes on to talk about the value of the capacities – such as passion and the ability to dream – that only humans possess. He believes that by working with machines, humans can help to create “more useful intelligence.” The problem? Too many of us are afraid of AI and the challenges it presents.
“We must face our fears if we want to get the most out of technology,” Kasparov says, “and we must conquer those fears if we want to get the best out of humanity.”
