Re: Alphazero news

If you don't like that 4-mover suite, allow SF8 or SF9 whatever to use a diversified polyglot book, with A0 playing its best moves right from the start . ANyrhing against that? If we did that, the criticism we would be getting now would be something like "those books aren't very strong, and SF woul...

Re: Alphazero news

I will reply just shortly, as I am a bit bored nailing down every detail of what I posted, and I have in les than an hour a dinner outside. "A0 (Lc0) in a pool of regular engines is not obeying the Elo model." Exactly! Thats why I didn't agree on your ELO math: A0 vs SF8 +17 =75 -8 +31 Elo points No...

Also, don't use fixed nodes when testing strength.
What does fixed nodes do to the testing?
Nets vary in speed, even among test30 nets there is quite a variarion. Strength is measured at same time control, not same number of nodes. Same time control could mean different number of nodes.

Re: LCzero network

"There is a debate in discord about these results. On long TC (or high nodes count) test30 seems to be better. However, most of the tests are done at very short TC (or low nodes count) where it seems test10 is superior. So it seems test30 scales better… However, most of the elo tests are performed ...

Re: The Lc0 squeak

Well, I am rarely using my RTX 2070 at full load for other tasks as of now (some Go engines will have it to use soon). Gee man, you have very powerful raytracing graphics card and you only play Lc0??? Play some games for god sake at like 4k. :D Most games are too complicated to me to really have fu...

Re: The Lc0 squeak

Am I the only one who gets this coming from the graphics card? It sounds like an old witch running her long fingernails down a blackboard, until your head is full of the vile noise and you want to pull your ears off. As soon as I stop Lc0 from analysing, the squeak stops. When I start it, it begins...

Re: Alphazero news

In fact, I mainly take as reliable result for A0 from varied openings the TCEC openings match against SF8: A0 vs SF8 +17 =75 -8 +31 Elo points Now, at first glance one can almost surely say that SF10 would have performed better, like: SF10 vs SF8 +22 =73 -5 +60 Elo points But it still doesn't mean ...

Re: Alphazero news

Yes, but didn't they take SF8 + book itself, and not the full BrainFish with its UCI option? That would be a good match: A0 versus full BrainFish of early 2018 with varied openings UCI option, but they seem to not have done that. This is an important question. Matthew, can you confirm whether Brain...
