This talk will review AI research into evolving a checkers playing program, as discussed in the book "Blondie24: Playing at the Edge of AI", by David Fogel (2002). We will have the opportunity to discuss game playing programs, artificial neural networks, and computer simulated evolution. Some reference will also be made to computer backgammon.

Presented by Jim Peterson, currently a student of AI. Not an expert in either checkers or backgammon, Jim has degrees in Applied Physics from Caltech and in Engineering from UCLA, and has been a manager and engineer in software and hardware companies.
