During the mid and late 80s, along with Sanjoy Mahajan, Kai-Fu Lee co-authored the at that time world class Othello program Bill [4], initially written in Common Lisp at Carnegie Mellon University in 1985, in 1986 rewritten in C, and in 2005 released under the GPL [5]. Bill 3.0 applied Bayesian learning of discriminant functions that automaticly combines evaluation features [6] [7].
