We believe everyone, regardless of their backgrounds, should have equal access to opportunities, being it playing chess tournaments, or access to AI training.
We understand this is not happening today for many reasons causing disparity in many different ways.
We envision if there is a way to connect people together, a master chess player from Europe with a kindergartener from California, a research scientist in silicon valley with a high schooler from Mexico, ......, we create opportunities to level the playing ground and we will be one step closer to our vision - everyone should have equal access to opportunities!
