The Future of Intelligent Work: A Conversation with GM Garry Kasparov

In this conversation, Professor David De Cremer speaks with GM Garry Kasparov about artificial intelligence, human creativity and the future of human-machine interaction. Antony Cook (Regional VP and Chief Legal Counsel, Microsoft Asia) provides introductory remarks.

  1. Is it justified to think of humans and machines as being in competition with each other? Why do we think of them as being in competition?
  2. How can we use AI to make organizations work more effectively?
  3. How can we create inclusive teams wherein humans work in collaboration with machines?

Garry Kasparov became the youngest world chess champion in history at the age of 22 in 1985. He broke Bobby Fischer’s rating record in 1990 and his own peak rating record remained unbroken until 2013. His famous matches against the IBM super-computer Deep Blue in 1996 and 1997 were key to bringing artificial intelligence and chess into the mainstream. This sparked his passionate interest in AI and how humans interact with increasingly intelligent machines. He has written extensively on the topic, including his latest book, Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins.
