Kasparov, Chess to Figure in Meet to Honor Father of Modern Computing Alan Turing

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Alan Turing
How can the mention of computers and artificial intelligence not have a mention of chess? Chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, along with Google Senior Vice-President Dr Vint Cerf, are going to be the leading figures who will celebrate the legacy of Alan Turing in Manchester.

The computer conference to honour the father of the modern computer, hailed as the biggest ever, will be hosted by the University of Manchester from June 22 to June 25.

The event will feature three days of lectures and panel discussions touching upon a wide array of topics – from Turing's legacy in the digital age, to computer science, the nature of human mind and the possibilities and limits of artificial intelligence. The discussions will be accompanied by a computer chess event, a poster session, and a competition of computer programmes proving theorems.
