Garry Kasparov: Humans don't have to lose when tech wins
In trying to start a dialogue on the looming battle between man and machine, the TED conference turned to an expert on the subject: Chess champion Garry Kasparov, who famously lost a match to IBM's Deep Blue in 1997.
Kasparov argued, though, that it is ultimately a good thing when machines can take on a task formerly limited to humans.
The bottom line: Trying to halt the pace of progress is a fool's errand, Kasparov argued. Instead, the goal should be for humans to make the most capable machines they can and focus on how to use that technology.
