On May 12, 1997, the front page of the New York Times read, “Swift and Slashing, Computer Topples Kasparov.”
The article, for those who may not remember, broke the news about one of the most infamous chess matches of all time, in which an IBM supercomputer, Deep Blue, defeated reigning world chess champion Garry Kasparov in six games. 
For many, this was far more than a chess match between man and machine. It was a sign that the gap was closing between artificial intelligence (AI) and human intelligence. And in a big way. 
As new AI ChatGPT earns hype, cybersecurity experts warn about potential malicious uses
OpenAI’s release of ChatGPT will go down as another extraordinary encounter between man and machine. Only this time, it isn’t a game. Language and its infinite applications are at stake. 
Not coincidentally, Garry Kasparov’s words when reflecting on his loss to Deep Blue 10 years later in an interview with the CBC seem most appropriate for this moment. “I always say, machines won’t make us obsolete,” he said. “Our complacency might.”

  1. “AIDA [Canada’s first piece of AI legislation, the Artificial Intelligence and Data Act ] is chiefly concerned with uses of AI that are deliberately harmful, such as data privacy breaches or financial crime. But it’s the grey zones that are more concerning. In education, for example, some have posited that this new step forward in AI will make homework a thing of the past.”
    Will that make the next generation of students more or less intelligent?
  2. “But what people tend to forget is that the technology made human chess players better as well” It turns out that “top players use engine preparations in world championships and everyday individuals utilize computers to learn and advance their games. AI has fundamentally transformed chess for the better”
    In what ways might ChatGPT and other AI do this?
