Rahul A. R.,
an Indian computer scientist at IBM Research Bangalore. He holds a masters degree in CS from International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, Bangalore on the topic of genetic algorithms applied to a Self Learning Chess Engine [1], where he gives a brief overview of the history and the basics of chess programming, and introduces neural networks and deep learning. The thesis chess engine dubbed Phoenix is based on CuckooChess by Peter Österlund. However, after investigations in early 2016, Peter Österlund found not only the allegedly 19 Elo improved Phoenix played all games with White, but using the published piece-square tables in CuckooChess was indeed about 400 elo weaker than the original, assuming Hanlon's razor applied [2]. Rahul A. R. interests in computer chess also manifests in a kind of Java "port" of Stockfish, where he docked pipes into Stockfish’s IO and routed everything into a Java class [3].
