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.
