Garry Kasparov

Hear the world’s premier chess champion and Grandmaster at the world’s premier conference on low-code automation! Garry Kasparov will keynote on Wednesday, March 11.

Mr. Kasparov came to international fame in 1985 at the age of 22 as the youngest world chess champion in history. He broke Bobby Fischer’s rating record in 1990, and his own peak rating record remained unbroken until 2013. His famous matches against the IBM super-computer Deep Blue in 1996-97 were key to bringing artificial intelligence, and chess, into the mainstream.

Mr. Kasparov will discuss his life in chess, and his humanitarian work in the Russian pro-democracy movement and as chairman of the New York-based Human Rights Foundation. He will discuss Deep Thinking, Mr. Kasparov’s new book on artificial intelligence, his matches against Deep Blue, and his work with the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford. As he says, “The human-machine relationship is quickly becoming the most important development in technology, business, and education.”
