Russian chess grandmaster lost his job because of AI

Garry Kasparov once dominated the chess village until he was defeated by IBM's Deep Blue supercomputer in 1997.

Kasparov's defeat was posted on the front page of many major newspapers around the world, with headlines like "the man who lost to the computer". Recently, Kasparov has once again appeared at the New York Hotel, where he was defeated in the past, to argue with AI experts. And in the process, the Wired reporter quickly had an interview with the greatest chess player (human) ever known to the world.

" I was the first worker whose job was threatened by a machine," said Kasparov, and expressed that that was what he saw impending to all of us.

" Every technology destroys jobs before creating new jobs. When you look at the statistics, only 4% of jobs in the US require human creativity. That means 96% of the rest, I can call them zombie jobs, they're dead jobs, people just don't know it. For decades we've been training People work like computers, and now we are complaining that those jobs are in danger. Of course. "

Experts say that only about 14% of jobs in the US are at risk of being replaced by AI and robots. However, Kasparov still gives some advice to humans who are doing zombie jobs like we do:

" There are different machines, and the role of humans is to understand exactly what that machine will need to do best to function . I can describe the role of humans as shepherds. sheep. "

For example, Kasparov helped Alphabet's DeepMind unit (Google's parent company) understand the potential weaknesses of AlphaZero's chess-making mechanism.

In the interview, Kasparov also said something interesting like this:

" It is said that it is necessary to make ethical AIs. It is pointless. Humans are unique in evil. The problem is not in AI. The problem is that people are using new technologies. to harm other people "
