Written by: Doshay, David G & McDowell, Charlie; also GNU Go developers & Wang, Kai & zhang, Xiaoyu & Wang, Harry & Chavez, Brian & Curry, Phil


Runs on a multi-cpu cluster of Macintosh computers. Could be run on any Unix or Linux system with MPI. Uses GNU Go as an underlying engine to supply suggested moves for global look ahead. Each cpu in the cluster is used to investigate a different global lookahead path. In addition to adding global look ahead to GNU Go, SlugGo also includes additional heuristics.
