Deniz Yuret [1]

Deniz Yuret,
a Turkish computer scientist and Assistant Professor at Koç University, Istanbul. He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1992-2000. His research interests includes machine learning and computational linguistics. At MIT he worked with David McAllester on Conspiracy Number Search, and the depth-first Alpha-Beta Conspiracy Search (ABC search), which uses conspiracy theory and disjoint depths of max- and min-player to control selectivity and extensions of an alpha-beta search, also mentioned by the Deep Blue team [2]. In his paper The Principle of Pressure in Chess, Deniz Yuret introduces the best-first Pressure Search algorithm, and concerning selectivity further mentions the ACM 1993 and its winner Socrates aka Titan, and corporate experiments with the Socrates team at MIT on new algorithms [3].
