LIBN: “Chess Legend Garry Kasparov to Speak on LI at CMM International Event”

Posted: May 17th, 2017

By Adina Genn, Long Island Business News

Garry Kasparov – the legendary chess champion and outspoken critic of Vladimir Putin – will be on Long Island June 7. The chair of the Human Rights Foundation, Kasparov will discuss his recent book Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped.

Hosted by Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, the fundraiser will benefit the Human Rights Foundation, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that promotes and protects human rights in closed societies.

This year marks the 20th anniversary in which Kasparov lost the chess match with IBM’s computer Deep Blue. He is making headlines now talking about why the United States should fear Russia under Putin and why human beings should embrace artificial intelligence.

The event will be held at the Woodlands in Woodbury from 6-9 p.m. Tickets and additional information available here.
