Lewis Benjamin Stiller,
an American computer scientist, software developer, consultant and attorney . He implemented a fully compliant CORBA 2.0 ORB and architected an IDL/Lisp-mapping, and at University of California, Berkeley, he specialized in Java architecture and worked on a Java Bayesian Inference Library. Stiller consulted for numerous corporations including IBM and NEC and held various management positions in the software industry.
Lewis Stiller holds a Ph.D. on Parallel Algorithms in AI from Johns Hopkins University, and worked on High-Performance AI Software at Thinking Machines and Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he researched on massively parallel retrograde analysis of certain chess endgames using a CM-2. He is co-author (along with Gady Costeff) of the free Chess Query Language (CQL), which uses SCID code by Shane Hudson .
