Man Vs. Machine: Deep Thinking With Garry Kasparov

Garry Kasparov’s 1997 chess match against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue was proof that artificial intelligence had become able to outwit human beings. Since then, society has questioned the relationship between man and machine, debating whether the benefits of artificial intelligence outweigh the cons.

In his latest book, Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins, Kasparov tackles this very question, reflecting on his own experience with artificial intelligence and its many implications on the future of work, politics, and society. Join Smith Soc on Monday September 11th for a reception to hear Kasparov share his experience – and his overall optimistic conclusions – about mankind’s relationship with A.I.

Complimentary copies of Deep Thinking will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis at this event.
