Well spotted. These are the references:

 

"Artificial Intelligence", by Patrick Henry Winston

https://courses.csail.mit.edu/6.034f/ai3/rest.pdf

(I think that must be a later edition because the page number she references isn't meaningful.)

 

"Some Studies in Machine Learning Using the Game of Checkers"

http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.368.2254&rep=rep1&type=pdf
