a Chinese American computer scientist and porfolio manager at Prediction Company. He holds a B.S. in electronic engineering and computer science from University of Science and Technology of China, and a Ph.D. in applied mathematics and computer science from Harvard University . From 1990 to '95 he worked at MIT on massively parallel computing and contributed to Cilk and its first chess program *Socrates.
Chris Joerg's and Bradley Kuszmaul's acknowledgments in Massively Parallel Chess on *Socrates : Charles E. Leiserson, Robert D. Blumofe, Yuli Zhou, and Michael Halbherr all contributed to making the chess program work and to developing the underlying parallel technology used in *Socrates. Don Dailey and Larry Kaufman of Heuristic Software provided the serial program, Socrates, on which our parallel program is based, and Don worked many hours to help us get our parallel program working. Hans Berliner and Chris McConnell of CMU provided the serial version of Hitech that we first used as a testbed to develop our ideas for parallel game tree search.
