Re: MRL - The MEA Rating List

I love the idea, but from my own experience having to clean out the WAC test suite, I know how important it is for all positions to be correct and have unique solutions. Otherwise seeing it not find 500 positions, or whatever the number, will be meaningless if those official solutions were wrong in...

Re: Chess Assistant, Stockfish, and multithreading

Frankly I haven't found any changes in the last 4-5 releases of CA - even the bugs appear to be the same. So, yes the perrsonalities is the same, and the sliders is sometimes quite annoying. Development for Chess Assistant has been frozen for quite some time, and they openly state this. Aquarium is...

Re: MRL - The MEA Rating List

I'm quite curious to see whether Leela can fit into that system, being the bipolar gal she is. :-) I don't follow the zero news, what is the downoad location? It depends somewhat on your hardware. If you have an Nvidia GPU, preferably not too old, then you will enjoy hugely more performance than wi...

Re: MRL - The MEA Rating List

This new type of rating list is inspired by MEA a tool developed by Ferdinand Mosca processing the 1500 theme based STS positions created by Dann Corbit and Swaminathan Natarajan. As an experiment shows the results are reasonable in sync with the CCRL 4/40 rating list and insipired me to give the S...

Re: Latest lc0-win-20180604-cuda92-cudnn714-experimental EXCELLENT

Interesting! That contradicts this report https://www.pcgamer.com/nvidia-ceo-says-it-will-be-a-long-time-before-next-gen-geforce-gpus/ I actually watched a video where he says "it'll be *gestures with his hand in a dismissive way* a long time away" I guess they have leftovers to get rid of, from th...

Re: Latest lc0-win-20180604-cuda92-cudnn714-experimental EXCELLENT

The latest lc0 CUDA experimental version is really excellent ! I'll be there, even if I have to buy a Titan V for that to happen ! I don’t think the Titan V is that much faster than your card without using its Tensor cores, maybe 30% or so? Also given the attention on AI - and that Nvidia are in no...

Re: Komodo 12.1

I completely agree. Over time we might find we need to change the eval and search a lot and they might begin to differ more over time. But they certainly will remain derivatives without some massive total program rewrite. In the Leela case, I believe they use Stockfish code for board representation...

Re: Komodo 12.1

I just have to ask: are there perhaps plans to enter Komodo MCTS into TCEC 13? My understanding is that TCEC rules would actually permit entering both classic and MCTS versions of Komodo, as the two are fundamentally different, i.e. the MCTS version can not be considered a "derivative" of classic K...
