Long-Term Planning in Computer Chess

Abstract [2]

A Framework for long-term planning in computer chess is sketched and as an example the King's Indian Defence is proposed schematically. Chess plans are represented as logical initiation, fulfilment and abandonment conditions and as modifications to the parameters used to evaluate nodes in a minimax search. Several such plans are than combined to form a directed acyclic graph (DAG) through which the program moves as the game progresses. Rules are represented to support creation, maintenence and consistency of the resulting plan DAGs. Funally, further work is suggested.
