Avast discusses responsible AI at Infosecurity Mexico

Avast Blog, 17 May 2019

Chess Guru Garry Kasparov and Avast Head of AI Rajarshi Gupta discuss the responsible use of AI at this month’s Infosecurity Mexico.

Artificial intelligence is everywhere today – and so are questions about its ethical use and cybersecurity risk. At this year’s Infosecurity Mexico, Avast brings two great thinkers to discuss this fascinating topic. 

Chess grandmaster and Avast Ambassador Garry Kasparov joins Avast Head of AI Rajarshi Gupta to discuss “The Responsible Use of AI to Enhance Society” on May 22 at 6pm on the Main Stage in Mexico City’s Centro Citibanamex. The two will explain artificial intelligence from all angles, from the advancements and convenience of beneficial home applications to the damage and destruction of cybercriminal use. 

They are well-qualified to mull over AI issues. Rajarshi holds over 200 patents in various fields of AI and cybersecurity. As chess fans will recall, Garry encountered the potential of AI during his famous matches against the supercomputer Deep Blue.

Then, on May 23 at 4pm at the Avast booth #714, there will be an autograph session with Garry, and at 5pm on the Coffee Stage, Garry, who became the youngest world chess champion in history in 1985, demonstrates his preternatural chess skills by taking on no less than 10 players at once in a grand chess match.
