When I'm not working, I enjoy board games – especially the oldest board game, Go, in which I’m now ranked 3rd dan. In Go the number of options is so large that a judicious combination of search and intuition is needed to play well. The best play is often one that best fits the game - with minimal moves; a nice parallel to my work at Quintiq.
