Opening keynote: The future of work is human – where machine intelligence ends and human creativity begins

In 1997, Garry Kasparov, the greatest chess player in the world, was defeated for the first time by the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue. It was a turning point in the history of artificial intelligence – the first time that machines had reached the ability to best human intellect.

While becoming the symbol of man’s fight against the machines, Garry has spent most of the past 20
years researching and devising ways in which humans can partner with machines in order to produce
better results than either can achieve alone.

Join Garry’s opening keynote as he talks about how he’s evolved to embrace artificial intelligence – the role of human creativity in the future of work, and how we must work together with technology to turn our grandest dreams into reality. He will focus on why it is time to stop agonising about machines taking over people’s jobs and how the future of work is human.
