Home * Engines * Aldebaran

a WinBoard compliant chess program written by Mauro Scarpa in C [1] , first released in April 2001 [2]. Aldebaran's aim was testing some automated tuning of the evaluation, and learning [3], and otherwise uses the common iterative deepening, quiescence search,and move ordering with PV and history heuristic [4]. Aldebaran played the CIPS 2001 and CIPS 2002 Italian Computer Chess Championships.
