Summary

I am interested in algorithms, especially those related to classic 2-player games such as Go or Hex, and to the latest techniques in artificial intelligence that help build artificial agents to play such games.  I am also interested in algorithms related to famous problems in graph theory, for example the four-colour problem or the perfect graph theorem.
