Summary, etc.:
"In this breakthrough book, chess legend, human rights advocate, and public intellectual Garry Kasparov unfurls the story of his landmark 1997 chess match against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue and considers the larger questions it raises about artificial intelligence. He describes how it felt to face an implacable, untiring opponent with the whole world watching and recounts the history of machine intelligence through the microcosm of chess, considered by generations of scientific pioneers to be a key to unlocking the secrets of human and machine cognition. Even as many critics decry AI as a menace, particularly to human jobs, Kasparov describes a bright future for human-machine partnership. Full of the insights and anecdotes that have made Kasparov a prized speaker to business and tech audiences around the world, Deep Thinking is a tightly argued case for technological progress, from the man who stood at its precipice with his own career at stake"--Back cover.
