Kishi's Page

Welcome to Akihiro Kishimoto's Page

Japanese Version

I have moved to IBM Research, Dublin, Ireland to work as a Research Staff Member. Please click the link to forward to my new website. I will place the pdf files of my publications there soon.


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences, Graduate School of Information Science and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology. I used to be a member of the ISshogi Project, in which we develop one of the strongest shogi (Japanese chess) programs in the world. Click here (in Japanese) for commercial versions of our software.

Research Interests

I am interested in Artificial Intelligence and parallel/distributed computing. I have been working with Prof. Martin Mueller and Prof. Jonathan Schaeffer since I was a member of the GAMES group in the Department of Computing Science at the University of Alberta.
