John Philip Fishburn,
an American computer scientist and electrical engineer from the Bell Laboratories. He made his Ph.D. Thesis in 1981 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison about Distributed Algorithms including the Parallelization of Alpha-Beta under the supervision of Raphael Finkel. The routine Calphabeta in his thesis [1] is mentioned by Tony Marsland as base of a Principal Variation Search implementation [2]. In his 1983 paper Another optimization of alpha-beta search, Fishburn introduced Fail-Soft Alpha-Beta [3] [4].
