Not Just Fun and Games: Creating a Chess AI That Can Beat You

Presented by: David Hauck

AI is in the news seemingly every week. Whether it is people like Elon Musk or Steven Hawking warning the public about them or a new program that can beat humans at yet another task, it is definitely a hot topic. This talk will go through how an AI program that can play chess is actually made. Using fundamental data structures and algorithms (without machine learning), the AI will start from the ground up and use audience knowledge of the game to make it an exceptional chess player! Afterwards, attendees can attempt to beat the AI that was built.
