Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins – Garry Kasparov – Google Books

Garry Kasparov’s 1997 chess match against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue was a watershed moment in the history of technology. It was the dawn of a new era in artificial intelligence: a machine capable of beating the reigning human champion at this most cerebral game. That moment was more than a century in the making, and in this breakthrough book, Kasparov reveals his astonishing side of the story for the first time. He describes how it felt to strategize against an implacable, untiring opponent with the whole world watching, and recounts the history of machine intelligence through the microcosm of chess, considered by generations of scientific pioneers to be a key to unlocking the secrets of human and machine cognition. Kasparov uses his unrivaled experience to look into the future of intelligent machines and sees it bright with possibility. As many critics decry artificial intelligence as a menace, particularly to human jobs, Kasparov shows how humanity can rise to new heights with the help of our most extraordinary creations, rather than fear them. Deep Thinking is a tightly argued case for technological progress, from the man who stood at its precipice with his own career at stake.

To what extent does Google limit page views in Google Books? – Web Applications

Publishers upload books via the Google Books Partner Program (http://books.google.com/googlebooks/tour/). A publisher sets the fraction of a book that can be previewed. This is how the help page describes it:

You have control over the percentage of pages that a user will be able to view during a 30 day period. This value can be set between 20% and 100%. Partners can also choose to make their book 100% browsable with the option to download a PDF.
