Chess AI Project

August 08, 2010 by Eric Marcarelli in Projects, Technology 0 comments
The Chess AI program I wrote is capable of playing through a full game of chess. The human player takes the side of white, and the computer will respond with black’s moves. The game can look an arbitrary number of moves (plies) into the future to select the best move. It uses four plies by default and takes between 10 and 90 seconds to make a move depending on the complexity of the current position. The game is written in C++ using SDL for graphics.

After a stretch of neglect, I’ve torn down the old site and put up this new, improved version. I’m currently working on mildly revising and posting the content I’d like to keep around.
