Michael Buro,
a German computer scientist, AI-researcher, and associate professor at the Department of Computing Science at University of Alberta. Michael Buro is creator of the ProbCut selective extension of the alpha-beta algorithm, applied to his Othello program Logistello [1] as part of his Ph.D. thesis at University of Paderborn [2]. In 1997, Logistello won 6-0 from the then Othello World champion Takeshi Murakami [3] [4] [5]. His General Linear Evaluation Model (GLEM), introduced at the Computer and Games 1998 conference in Tsukuba, Japan [6], also applied to Othello, covers not only automated tuning quite similar to Texel's Tuning Method which popularized logistic regression tuning in computer chess some years later, but further provides a procedure for exploring the feature space able to discover new evaluation features in a computational feasible way.
