The Technology Chess Program

  • James J. Gillogly


A chess program has been developed which plays good chess (for a program) using a very simple structure. It is based on a brute force search of the move tree with no forward pruning, using material as the only terminal evaluation function, and using a limited positional analysis at the top level for a tiebreak between moves which are materially equal Because of the transparent structure, this program is proposed as a technological benchmark for chess programs which will continue to improve as computer technology increases.
