Feng-hsiung Hsu, (Feng-Hsiung Hsu)
a Chinese American computer scientist. Creator of the VLSI-architecture [2] of the chess entities ChipTest, Deep Thought [3] and Deep Blue [4] , which defeated Garry Kasparov in 1997 [5]. In 1985, Feng-hsiung Hsu started with the chip design as Ph.D. Student at the Carnegie Mellon University, made his Ph.D. thesis Large Scale Parallelization of Alpha-Beta Search: An Algorithmic and Architectural Study with Computer Chess in 1989 under supervision of Hsiang-Tsung Kung [6] and was then hired by IBM for the Deep Blue project [7]. Hsu now manages the platforms and devices center of Microsoft Research Asia, in Beijing [8] .
