Biography

“Don’t fear intelligent machines, work with them.”

One of the greatest chess players of all time, Garry Kasparov ranked world No.1 from 1986 until his retirement in 2005. He was the first world champion to be beaten by a machine during the famous 1997 six-game match with the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue. Since then he has leveraged his personal experience with AI to become a pioneering thought-leader on the critical partnership between humans and machine intelligence.
