The name SMIRF is an acronym for "Strategiespielprogramm mit intelligent rückkoppelnden Funktionen" (German for "Strategic Game Program With Intelligent Recursing Facilities"). It designates an appropriate innovative variant of an adaptive recursive feedback implementation. The procedure cuts the to be evaluated search tree effectively both in the depth and in the width. Thus, this approach is associated with artificial intelligence. To provide a program for the game of chess as efficient as possible is a touchstone of the artificial intelligence. The creation of such software is a goal of the SMIRF project.
