Defeated Chess Champ Garry Kasparov Has Made Peace With AI

Garry Kasparov is perhaps the greatest chess player in history. For almost two decades after becoming world champion in 1985, he dominated the game with a ferocious style of play and an equally ferocious swagger.

Outside the chess world, however, Kasparov is best known for losing to a machine. In 1997, at the height of his powers, Kasparov was crushed and cowed by an IBM supercomputer called Deep Blue. The loss sent shock waves across the world, and seemed to herald a new era of machine mastery over man.

The years since have put things into perspective.

Kasparov recently returned to the scene of his famous Deep Blue defeat—the ballroom of a New York hotel. In an interview, he discusses chess, AI, and a strategy for staying a step ahead of machines.
