"It just isn't conceivable that you can design a program strong enough to beat players like me."

Carlsen finally makes it clear

DW: "Would you participate in a public game against a computer in the near future - or is that not an option for you? The last one I remember was Vladimir Kramnik against Deep Fritz in 2006."

MC: "I personally never wanted that. I find it much more interesting to play humans. And also, of course, now that they have become so strong in a game like that, I wouldn't stand a chance."

The reigning world champ Magnus Carlsen finally gives a clear answer to tons of past speculations about his chances against Stockfish or Komodo in a human vs machine match.

We knew such match would never happen.

So, would you still think that his statement "never wanted that" is just past tense and therefore doesn't apply to the future? Or would you still predict that a huge prize for losing such a match would push him to change his mind?

Thanks.

Both are in my repository. Can you browse the folder? I'd previously posted the link of the folder somewhere in the blog.
