In 2013 moest hij Rusland noodgedwongen verlaten. Kasparov woont in New York en voert de strijd tegen het Poetin-regime nu van buitenaf. In 2007 verscheen van Kasparovs hand How Life Imitates Chess.Dit boek werd in 23 talen vertaald. Op vind je alle boeken van Garry Kasparov, waaronder het nieuwste boek van Garry Kasparov.

In May 1997, the world watched as Garry Kasparov, the greatest chess player in the world, was defeated for the first time by the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue. It was a watershed moment in the history of technology: machine intelligence had arrived at the point where it could best human intellect.It wasn't a coincidence that Kasparov became the symbol of man's fight against the machines. Chess has long been the fulcrum in development of machine intelligence; the hoax automaton 'The Turk' in the 18th century and Alan Turing's first chess program in 1952 were two early examples of the quest for machines to think like humans -- a talent we measured by their ability to beat their creators at chess. As the pre-eminent chessmaster of the 80s and 90s, it was Kasparov's blessing and his curse to play against each generation's strongest computer champions, contributing to their development and advancing the field. Like all passionate competitors, Kasparov has taken his defeat and learned from it. He has devoted much energy to devising ways in which humans can partner with machines in order to produce results better than either can achieve alone. During the twenty years since playing Deep Blue, he's played both with and against machines, learning a great deal about our vital relationship with our most remarkable creations. Ultimately, he's become convinced that by embracing the competition between human and machine intelligence, we can spend less time worrying about being replaced and more thinking of new challenges to conquer.In this breakthrough book, Kasparov tells his side of the story of Deep Blue for the first time -- what it was like to strategize against an implacable, untiring opponent -- the mistakes he made and the reasons the odds were against him. But more than that, he tells his story of AI more generally, and how he's evolved to embrace it, taking part in an urgent debate with philosophers worried about human values, programmers creating self-learning neural networks, and engineers of cutting edge robotics.

Deeply research and clearly exposited, it is also a revealing portrait of what it is like to a real-life John Henry pitted against the steam hammer. --Ken Rogoff, bestselling author of This Time is Different As Kasparov recounts in arresting detail what it felt like to compete cognitively with a machine, he extrapolates his experience into an optimistic perspective on how computerized intelligence can enhance rather than overwhelm human brainpower, and instead of only eliminating jobs and opportunities, can actually generate them. --Booklist Intelligent, absorbing...Thoughtful reading for anyone interested in human and machine cognition and a must for chess fans. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review Few people have a more interesting or illuminating perspective than Garry Kasparov. Deep Thinking is a provocative and fascinating read that will challenge the conventional wisdom about our future. --Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP Garry Kasparov has been a true pioneer in both the theory and practice of human-machine intelligence. Deep Thinking encompasses his wisdom in these areas in a highly entertaining and informative manner. I couldn't put it down, and don't think you will be able to either. --Tyler Cowen, author of The Great Stagnation Deep Thinking is like Kasparov himself: fascinating, razor-sharp, and provocative. In it he finally tells us, twenty years later, what he's learned from participating in the most famous human vs. machine competition since John Henry. The answer is a huge amount, which is also what you'll learn from reading Deep Thinking. --Andrew McAfee, principal research scientist at MIT and coauthor of The Second Machine Age Kasparov includes enough detail to satisfy chess enthusiasts, while providing a thrilling narrative for the casual reader. Deep Thinking delivers a rare balance of analysis and narrative, weaving commentary about technological progress with an inside look at one of the most important chess matches ever played. --Demis Hassabis, Nature The raw emotion of [the loss to Deep Blue] bursts out of the pages of Kasparov's gripping story, which he fully recounts for the first time in Deep Thinking... What is striking, and reassuring, is that far from raging against the machine, Kasparov marvels at the capabilities of computers and is excited by the possibilities for future collaboration...reads at times like a fast-paced psychological thriller. --John Thornhill, Financial Times A highly human exploration of artificial intelligence, its exciting possibilities and inherent limits. --Max Levchin, cofounder of PayPal, CEO of Affirm, and Silicon Valley angel investor

    Ik ben geen groot schaakfan, maar heb altijd met erg veel interesse gekeken naar de schaakwereld. Het boek gaat van links naar rechts, maar altijd met een punt. De schrijfstijl is misschien wel vergelijkbaar met Geert Mak in De eeuw van mijn vader en Reizen zonder John.

    Het boek is 90% historie over schaken, schaakcomputers, de snelheid van ontwikkelingen en zijn eigen wedstrijden tegen de computers. Er zit duidelijk nog oud zeer tegen IBM in, maar hij legt ook wel uit waar dat vandaan komt. Die laatste 10% is de toekomst van de mensheid in samenspraak met computers.

    Als je echt niets met schaken hebt of niet van sportmetaforen houdt moet je het niet lezen. Indien beide je wel kunnen bekoren: aanrader.

  • Visie van Garry Kasparov op AI aan de hand van zijn wedstrijd met Deep
    • Toegankelijk
    • Heldere uitleg
    • Te theoretisch

    Geschreven bij Deep Thinking

    In dit boek legt Garry Kasparov de geschiedenis van AI / Datamining uit aan de hand van zijn ervaringen opgedaan met het spelen tegen schaak computers tot het moment dat hij verslagen werd door Deep Blue de schaak computer van IBM. In het boek wordt ook uitgebreid ingegaan op deze wedstrijd en het ontbreken van etiquette en lange termijn visie van IBM. Dit gezegd hebbende lijkt mij dit boek lastig te lezen voor mensen die helemaal geen verstand van schaken hebben en er ook geen interesse in hebben.
