How deep learning algorithms are changing lives – and business

Smart computers aren’t science fiction – they are now science fact In 1996, Deep Blue – IBM’s chess-playing supercomputer – beat Grand Master and world chess champion Gary Kasparov under standard tournament rules for the first time. Kasparov was not pleased. In the subsequent decades, chess players at every level have had a growing variety of chess machines to play against and hone their skills. Most of them still lose – even against a chess engine running on a smartphone. The power of these computers is a demonstration of Moore’s Law in action: the proposition that chip performance would double every 18 months. Chess machines have ever-more processing power and can crunch numbers and data at ever-greater speeds, and use enhanced processing power to search through all possible future moves…
