Brian Haskin (Janzert),
an American computer scientist involved in Arimaa programming [1]. He is creator of AEI, the Arimaa Engine Interface, a flexible and easy to implement protocol for communication with Arimaa playing programs [2], and the Arimaa bot OpFor [3]. OpFor, using a bitboard representation with some auxillary information held in piece arrays, was written in the D-Programming Language. However, he retired it in 2011 to start over with C++ primarily because he was tired of dealing with compiler bugs [4]. In the 2010 Google AI Challange, Brian Haskin's Tron bot [5] became fifth (out of 708) [6].
