Films, books and lore set human against machine in a battle for survival, but this is the wrong narrative, says world chess champion Garry Kasparov, who lost to IBM’s Deep Blue computer in a famous 1997 match. Kasparov avers that technology’s win is also a triumph for humanity because computers are a human creation. getAbstract recommends his optimistic, visionary talk that may appeal equally to technology proponents and naysayers.

- Why people shouldn’t fear technology and
- How “human-plus-machine” collaborations will unlock grand new possibilities.
