For anybody who isn't familiar with his life, Nils was one of the early pioneers in Artificial Intelligence. He was probably best known for creating the A* algorithm.
R.I.P., Mr. Nillson.
I always had him down as a neat, but he said in a speech to AAAI that AI needed scruffies as well as neats.
I remember learning A* when trying to make my first game, it was an awful game but A* really changed the way I think about simple algorithms and was the main thing I took away from that whole experience. RIP fellow engineer, you did great things and I hope your work continues to inspire.
It is truly impressive how far his work reached, almost every developer I have interacted with have at some point either used or implemented A*.
RIP mr. Nilsson, your legacy will live on
Don't sweat it/don't chase fake internet points.
