Michael Barenfeld,
an American psychologist and computer scientist. While affiliated with Carnegie Mellon University in the late 60s, he worked with Herbert Simon on perceptual processes in problem solving, and developed a program dubbed Perceiver based on previously developed routines of the program Mater [1] for detecting basic chess relations of attack and defense, to simulate the eye movements of a chess expert over a 5-second interval scanning a chess position preparatory to making a move [2].
