Chain detection algorithm

Post by Jorge Garcia » Thu Jul 13, 2017 8:28 pm

Hi all,
I stumbled across this article published in chessbase
http://en.chessbase.com/post/switch-sid ... id-and-ios
I put some quotes...
"It was developed under a research grant that was intended to describe a game that had increased human-perceptual complexity while still maintaining the same theoretical game tree size as the standard version of chess. This was useful in shifting the focus from studying ‘higher complexity’ in AI (think the paradigm shift from chess to Go, which has recently been conquered by computers as well) to studying ‘cleverer algorithms’ in order to play the game as well as humans."
"it does kind of implement the novel chain detection algorithm developed primarily by Paul Bonham"

Can someone give technical information about this algorithm?
