Willie Cohen

I am currently a graduate student at the University of Rochester. I am working toward a Master of Science degree in Computer Science. As an incoming freshman at Rochester I was admitted to the GEAR (Graduate Engineering At Rochester) program, which is a combined degree admission program. I graduated this past May with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a minor in Business, and I will graduate this coming May with my M.S. in Computer Science.

I am currently searching for a software development role, preferably in the NYC area.

Othello AI
April 2015
Othello AI designed as an assignment for my Artificial Intelligence course. This was a team project which I collaborated with Casey Waldren and Johnny Jacobs on. The AI uses a modified version of the negamax and alpha-beta pruning algorithms to play against a human or compter opponent.
