Tim Huang, longtime member of the Vermont Go Club and a tireless promoter of the game of go passed away June 14 after a long battle with leukemia and its after-effects. Tim attended several U.S. Go Congresses and included many of his students – he was a Associate Professor of Computer Science at Middlebury College — in AI studies of the game. His contributions to AI research helped lead to many of the critical developments in computer science and artificial intelligence, according to Middlebury President Ron Liebowitz. Huang is survived by his wife, Chae Sim Huang, and daughter, Lydia; his parents, Dr. and Mrs. Charles and Karen Huang; two sisters, Judy Huang and Jennifer (Huang) Stiller; and eight nieces and nephews. A memorial service was held on June 18 at Mead Memorial Chapel. “Here in Vermont we are mourning of our colleague and friend,” reports Pete Schumer.
