John Ross Quinlan,
an Australian computer scientist and researcher in machine learning, data mining, and decision theory along with first-order logic and inductive logic programming. He runs his company RuleQuest Research [2], and was affiliated with the University of Sydney, the University of Technology Sydney, the University Of New South Wales and the RAND Corporation.

Based on the concept learning [3] by Earl B. Hunt [4] as used in decision tree learning, Ross Quinlan invented the tree induction algorithms Iterative Dichotomiser 3 (ID3) [5] and their successors C4.5, and C5.0 [6] [7]. and further introduced the first-order inductive learner (FOIL). One application of these algorithms is to discover classifications rules for chess endgames, as shown with KRKN and ID3 in Learning Efficient Classification Procedures and Their Application to Chess End Games [8] .
