Podcast: An Interview with Garry Kasparov and This Week in Machine Learning (TWiML)

In this podcast, recorded live at Figure Eight’s TRAIN AI 2018 conference in San Francisco, Garry Kasparov and Sam Charrington of This Week in Machine Learning (TWiML) discuss Garry’s bouts with chess-playing computer Deep Blue–which became the first computer system to defeat a reigning world champion in their 1997 rematch–and how that experience has helped shape his thinking on artificially intelligent systems. They also explore Garry’s perspective on the evolution of AI, the ways in which chess and Deep Blue differ from Go and Alpha Go, and the significance of DeepMind’s Alpha Go Zero. They also talk through his views on the relationship between humans and machines, and how he expects it to change over time.
