Aldebaran in the Taurus constellation [1]

a WinBoard compliant chess program by Mauro Scarpa, written in C [2], first released in April 2001. Aldebaran's aim was testing some automated tuning of the evaluation, and learning, and otherwise uses the common iterative deepening, quiescence search, and move ordering with PV and history heuristic. Aldebaran played the CIPS 2001 and CIPS 2002 Italian Computer Chess Championships.
