Kasparov & Deep Blue
In 1997, Kasparov, the world’s best chess player lost a match against an IBM supercomputer called Deep Blue. He resigned after 19 moves. This had never happened before, creating a societal shift in which AI began to fulfil what scientists had always known it could do. Although AI is thought to have fascinating capabilities, it also presents ethical issues, and while we are surrounded by it, a lot of people feel uneasy, and perhaps even assume that “robots will eventually take over.”
That being said, it’s important to take into consideration that AI cannot function without humans and the two working together have a lot of potential to solve limitations. So, by taking chess and bringing it back to the ’90s, when AI first began to make its major mark, the set aims to bring computer and humans together.
