Gian-Carlo Pascutto, (GCP)
a Belgian [1] computer scientist, and computer chess and Go programmer with further interests in sound recording and reproduction and digital signal processing [2]. Gian-Carlo is author of the free open source chess and chess variants engine Sjeng [3], the chess engine Deep Sjeng, which emerged from the closed source Sjeng 12.7 branch [4] and went commercial in 2003 [5], the experimental chess engine Stoofvlees, and the Go playing program Leela [6]. More recently, after DeepMind published the AlphaGo Zero paper [7], Gian-Carlo Pascutto designed and initiated Leela Zero [8], a Go playing entity using MCTS (but without Monte Carlo playouts) and a deep residual convolutional neural network stack, trained by a public, distributed effort, as LCZero also adapted to chess [9] [10].
