Kasparov will open WeAreDevelopers World Congress 2019 in Berlin!

The man “who won by losing rematch” arrives in Berlin

  • For the first time WeAreDevelopers World Congress, the world’s largest congress for developers, will be held in Germany on 6th & 7th June 2019.
  • More than 10.000 technology pioneers, developers, and leading IT experts are expected in the CityCube Berlin

Chess Grandmaster and AI expert Garry Kasparov will open the WeAreDevelopers World Congress with his keynote. Besides being considered as the best chess player of all times, he is also leading AI expert in “human & machine” collaboration. By losing the iconic (re)match against IBM supercomputer Deep Blue in 1996, he attracted the attention of the broader public to the topic of artificial intelligence (AI) with the modest recognition that collaboration between human and machine is absolutely inevitable.

“AI will transform everything we do. We must press forward ambitiously in the one area robots cannot compete with humans: in dreaming big dreams”, said by Kasparov at the end of the iconic match. From that moment onwards he has been tirelessly working on promoting AI as lead support for the development of mankind.

This combination is not unusual at all, because the roots of computer science are deeply connected with chess. Alan Turing (father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence) was using chess to explore machine behavior strategies and wrote the first chess program on a piece of paper.
