John Philip Fishburn,
an American computer scientist and electrical engineer from the Bell Laboratories. He defended his Ph.D. thesis in 1981 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on distributed algorithms including the parallelization of Alpha-Beta under the supervision of Raphael Finkel. The routine Calphabeta in his thesis [1] is mentioned by Tony Marsland as base of a Principal Variation Search implementation [2]. In his 1983 paper Another optimization of alpha-beta search, John Philip Fishburn introduced Fail-Soft Alpha-Beta [3] [4].
