Garry Kasparov: Why the world should embrace AI  #ai

  • Not at all, says chess grandmaster and former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov.
  • Kasparov has direct experience of being humbled by a machine, so it’s perhaps surprising that he has a pro-AI outlook.
  • Since then Kasparov has gone on to become something of an AI authority: his new book, Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins was released last month.
  • The BBC Click team caught up with Kasparov at this year’s Hay Festival in the UK.
  • In the video above, watch what he had to say about the inevitability of AI’s rise – and why it could actually be a revolution that will help humans work even better.

The chess grandmaster, who once saw his skills outstripped by artificial intelligence, explains why it’s time to welcome the era of smart machines.

Five Examples of AI Dominating Humans in the World of Gaming

Five Examples of #AI Dominating Humans in the World of Gaming

  • Artificial intelligences have recently bested the world’s top Go and poker players, but those aren’t the first machines to dominate humans in the world of gaming, with systems claiming victories as many as 20 years ago.
  • In fact, the first time a computer beat a human world champion was around 20 years before.
  • On to a more recent and multifaceted victory: AlphaGo defeating five of the world’s top players — not one at a time, but simultaneously — at the 2,500-year-old game of Go earlier this year.
  • The game incorporates bluffing and spontaneity, two traits that seem far more suited for a human player than an AI, and yet the system built by two Carnegie Mellon computer scientists was still able to claim a victory.
  • Chinook beat the world’s second best player, Don Lafferty, who was still leagues below Tinsley, and so the AI was awarded the win.

Even world champions couldn’t beat these game-playing AIs.

It was my blessing and my curse to be the world chess champion when computers finally reached a world championship level of play. When I resigned the final match game against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue on May 11, 1997, I became the first world champion to be defeated in a classical match by a machine.

The AI system that knows when your company needs a loan

The #AI system that knows when your company needs a loan  #fintech #IBMInterConnect

  • In May, it will be 20 years since Deep Blue, a refrigerator-sized supercomputer, clinched victory in a six-match series against world chess champion Garry Kasparov.
  • “I believe the IBM team owes the world of chess and the world of science a full explanation of how such a flexible machine was developed,” he said at the time.
  • “I also think IBM owes me, and all mankind, a rematch.”
  • Yes, we saw the rise of companies such as Google crafting nifty algorithms to mine our…

Why football, not chess, is the true final frontier for robotic artificial intelligence

#Future #Tech: why #football, not chess, is the true final frontier for #robotic #AI ►

  • In recent years, their ability has significantly improved: many labs now boast five or six-a-side humanoid robot teams .
  • So while the robots may seem less capable this year than the year before, it’s because the goalposts are moving.
  • The tasks involved in playing football, although much more intuitive to humans than chess or Go, are a major challenge for robots.
  • The RoboCup tournament held its 20th competition in Leipzig this year .
  • Led by Hiroaki Kitano and Manuela Veloso , the ambitious goal set that year was to have by 2050 a team of humanoid robots able to play a game of football against the world champion team according to FIFA rules, and win.

Computers must master football if they are to demonstrate that they can be our equal.
