Re: Chess Fighter Neural Net

I have had a similar frustrating experience with reinforcement learning before i deemed it too big a project for one man. What input planes do you use besides piece placement? I use attack tables and piece counts as additional inputs and they seem to help accelerate learning. Do you use replay buff...

Re: Is AlphaZero-LC0 (Leela0) A chess Engine?

...Deep Mind's claims also hinge on the conditions, not least of which is that they ran AlphaZero at roughly a 900 to 1 NPS handicap. Not a fair comparison of the engines at all. I wonder how it would have gone if the hardware were more comparable. When I use dkappe’s Leela ratio to equalize GPU to...

Re: Is AlphaZero-LC0 (Leela0) A chess Engine?

I don't like Leela ratio. My suggestions: 1. CPU and GPU same price 2. Best possible CPU/GPU you can get. 3. Max 1000 € readybuilt gaming PC. Fair or not !? Not sure what this changes, except the strange 3) you placed. Also, prices will vary quite a bit from continent to continent. So I looked up t...

Re: Is AlphaZero-LC0 (Leela0) A chess Engine?

Now before anyone jumps to any conclusions regarding the 'headline' of this post I would like to make a statement: I love what the LC0 (Leela0) github project has accomplished ..love the binaries..the whole concept is fascinating and very exciting and all that BUT I must keep in mind that I have be...

Re: Lc0 ... the GOOD and the BAD

Of course I don't have A0, but I do have 100 games it played against SF. So I went through some games with Lc0 and it was remarkable that almost every move was a match with Lc0. The only moves that did not match were tactical shots that Lc0 could not see. So you could say that once Lc0 sorts out th...

Re: Dramatic drop in performance with LC0 after updating Cuda drivers

Actually I did download what was the latest Cuda drivers from Nvidia … I think it was version 10. But somehow installing those drivers installed like 8 different subsets of drivers, including Physix (or something like that) and a bunch of other stuff that I have no clue what they were. Most likely ...

Re: Deus X Neural Network Progress

How has the progress of the 'Deus X' neural network been going? Block sizes, Games, Current plans, Playing Style, Elo, etc ... With no selfplay games I would guess that progress may be a little slower in terms of improving strength. PS: Would be nice if you developed a website / blog. Hi Ted, Thing...

Re: Does Leela Chess Zero analysis depend on the processor?

Quite probably it depends on the phase of the moon. AZ search would make a good random number generator. Miraculous that the threads and the parallelisation manage to work at all. but they do. Maybe Crem can explain the algorithm. You are right, the randomness in Lc0 is very large. Would it be poss...
