In New Scientist, 3 June 2017, p.42-43, there is an interview with
Kasparov (who has just published a book about his defeat by Deep Blue),
where he says "Deep Blue is the end and AlphaGo the beginning", and

"I'm sure some things were learned about parallel processing... but the
real science was known by the 1997 rematch... but AlphaGo is an entirely
different thing. Deep Blue's chess algorithms were good for playing
chess very well. The machine-learning methods AlphaGo uses are
applicable to practically anything."

Agree or disagree?
