It’s been a few weeks since we’ve been at the blog, it’s been a busy summer. This week Justin Russell and I are hitting the road for some long-awaited production in Canada and Iowa. But first things first:
Major congratulations to my brother, Perry, who assumed Command of U.S. Navy Patrol Squadron 30 on July 17. Awesome job as always big bro! I spent the days leading up to production in Jacksonville, FL celebrating the event.
Justin and I arrived in Edmonton, Alberta late this afternoon. We’re here to spend some time with Dr. Jonathan Schaeffer at the University of Alberta. Dr. Schaeffer and his team spent 18 years developing a computer program that eventually solved checkers. Their program, Chinook, can be played here:
Throughout their time in the checkers world Dr. Schaeffer and his team rubbed elbows with many of the characters in King Me. Tomorrow, they will share some of their experiences with us.
