Join in as Garry discusses the intersection of rights and social media in the age of AI

Garry Kasparov, former world chess champion, tech optimist, Avast Security Ambassador and an advocate both of AI and digital human rights, will soon be hosting a “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session on Reddit. In addition to answering questions raised by Redditors, Garry’s AMA will address two big questions:

  • Is privacy dead? 
  • How is AI affecting our digital lives?

Garry is passionate about discussing AI and future tech at events and conferences, and he’ll be hosting this AMA session in partnership with Viva Technology, Europe's biggest startup and tech event happening June 16-19 both in Paris and online. As a former speaker at VivaTech, the topics raised during Garry’s AMA will tie in nicely with many of the talks at the upcoming event.
