Jonathan Schaeffer
Short biographical note
My research area is artificial intelligence (AI). I am best known for my work applying AI technology to the problem of building high performance game-playing programs, as well as tackling the challenges
of the commercial computer games industry. I am the author of the checkers-playing program Chinook, the first computer program to win a human world championship. In 2007 we announced that the game had been solved: perfect play by both sides leads to a draw.
