Syed Fahad,
a computer chess programmer from Indian-administrated region of Kashmir, who began chess programming at age 13 [1]. He is author of chess engines Chesser [2] and Yaka [3]. Fascinated by bit-twiddling along with bitboards and in particular sliding piece attacks, he devised the subtraction based attack mask generation (SBAMG), and wrote the bitboard C++ library dubbed M42 [4] which offers magic bitboards, hyperbola quintessence, and SBAMG [5]. Further, Syed Fahad rediscovered the idea of table-driven move generation as implemented experimentally inside Yaka which turned out to be slower than magic bitboards [6].
