Project Descriptions

Chess Game Commentator

Researcher in Israel: Shay Bushinsky

Researcher in Italy: Bruno Lepri



  • The objective of the project is to build a chess commentator that can disperse commentary to many users. An asymmetric depth search algorithm has been designed and implemented for discovering tactical shots in a given chess position. Based on the infrastructure designed, the commentator has shifted in the direction of a distributed artificial intelligence agent system, which can apply different commentary levels both of human and of specialized computers in position analysis. A shell prototype was produced that can be used to deliver expert chess game commentary from different sources and perspectives.
