FIBS Bot: tesauro

tesauro was the FIBS incarnation of TD Gammon, the first neural net backgammon program, trained partly by pubeval. TD Gammon was written by Gerry Tesauro (, gerry on FIBS).

Although tesauro is not on FIBS these days, a one-point match playing version, TD_one is.

There are several accounts of TD Gammon's history and groundbreaking application of temporal difference (hence 'TD') learning in game programs. Probably the best is on Jay Scott's site.
