Vladimir Arlazarov [1] [2]

Vladimir L’vovich Arlazarov,
a Russian mathematician, computer scientist, computer chess pioneer, and CEO of the private company Cognitive Technologies [3] [4] founded in 1993, located in the building of the Institute of Systems Analysis, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow [5]. Since 2007, Vladimir Arlazarov is member of the European Academy of Sciences [6].

In 1963 [7] at Alexander Kronrod’s laboratory at the Moscow Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (ITEP), Vladimir Arlazarov co-developed the ITEP Chess Program, along with Georgy Adelson-Velsky, Anatoly Uskov and Alexander Zhivotovsky, advised by Russian chess master Alexander Bitman and three-time world champion Mikhail Botvinnik [8]. At the end of 1966 a four game match began between the Kotok-McCarthy-Program, running on a IBM 7090 computer, and the ITEP Chess Program on a Soviet M-2 computer. The match played over nine months was won 3-1 by the The ITEP program, despite playing on slower hardware. By 1971, Mikhail Donskoy joined with Arlazarov and Uskov to program its successor on an ICL System 4/70 at the Institute of Control Sciences, called Kaissa, which became the first World Computer Chess Champion in 1974 in Stockholm.
