Then I thought, what if I could play with a computer — together with a computer at my side, cnonbiimg our strengths, human itnioiutn plus machine's calculation, human strategy, machine tictcas, human experience, machine's memory. Could it be the perfect game ever played?

Original Text

What I learned from my own experience is that we must face our fears if we want to get the most out of our technology, and we must conquer those fears if we want to get the best out of our humanity. While licking my wounds, I got a lot of inspiration from my battles against Deep Blue. As the old Russian saying goes, if you can't beat them, join them. Then I thought, what if I could play with a computer — together with a computer at my side, combining our strengths, human intuition plus machine's calculation, human strategy, machine tactics, human experience, machine's memory. Could it be the perfect game ever played?
