He received his M.Sc. in CS from New York Institute of Technology in 2008 [1], and was lead programmer of Hydra and principle author of the chess engines Cryptic [2] and Shark, in 2008 mentioned on the now defunct Hydra site, and from May 2008 until December 2009 on Wikipedia [3] [4].



  • Cryptic runs on modern high speed multi-processor CPU. It is programmed in mixed C and Assembly Language. It is aimed to be the world's top single machine Chess Engine.
  • Shark is network based deep search meta engine. It is based on unique idea by which it reaches to depth of 25+ easily with the help of only 6 CPUs in less than a minute. Currently a dual core CPU takes more than an hour to reach to this depth.
