Chess has been the symbol for intelligence & creativity for centuries. Recently it has been used in the development of artificial intelligence using Machine Algorithm by DeepMind, an AI company acquired by Google. Lets see the benefits Chess provides to all of us.
Bill Gates plays against World Champion Magnus Carlsen in this video, and Gates loses in 9 moves! But see how Gates knows basic rules of chess, he knows the basic opening of moving the pawn in front of his king two squares, he knows to develop his knights before bishops as well as knows castling!
