Re: AI offer/agree to a draw like a human?

Hmmm, on second thought, maybe Leela does incorporate that (MC?). I'm not sure now. Maybe someone here would care to look at the paper again :P The output of Leela Zero for Go looks like this: NN eval=0.440025 Playouts: 4602, Win: 47.12%, PV: D4 Q4 Q16 D16 R3 R4 Q3 P3 P2 O3 O2 N3 N2 M3 C17 D17 C16 ...

I am fairly sure that when he wrote score he meant win probability.
There is no such thing in a chess engine.
That's not true :wink:

Leela works with probabilities, not scores.

Re: Alphazero news

Maybe people will go to jail because an AI thinks he will someday do a crime. One day autonomous robots will decide which person to kill, on a battlefield or to prevent a possible crime. Maybe one day an AI will press the red button. We have the so-called " Ethics of artificial intelligence " to pr...

Re: Alphazero news

OK what we know : 1) Stockfish is the best engine in the world 2) LC0 guys did manage to reverse engineer A0 successfully 3) LC0 and A0 roughly at the same strength 4) NN are not less resource hungry than Alpha Beta 5) Scalability is about the same in both methods 6) Google has unacceptable behavio...

Re: AI offer/agree to a draw like a human?

No-brainer draw offers: 1) You think you will lose and it is not apparent yet 2) You have a proven draw by TB search No progress draws can be very tricky. I have seen SF give a static score for 15 plies and then suddenly take off and earn a checkmate. Of course, that is very rare. I think it is not...

Re: Which OS is better for chess? Windows or Linux.

I think you can get everything to work in Linux, except Chessbase native engines. But If you like to run all kind of chess engines, maybe it is easier with windows. If you like to use comfortable and well looking user interfaces like Chessbase, Shredder or Arena you should use windows. If you need t...

Re: New Houdini?

If there is a good idea that R. Houdart can mine out of the Leela project, it could be injected, for those who have Cuda cards. Nothing wrong with that. I hope he does it. Or something else to make it stronger. It is already a goto guy for tactical toughies. Surely we're only talking about implemen...

New Houdini?

When can we expect a new Houdini?

After "Houdini Reproduced Robbolito" and "Houdini Shifted Stockfish" can we look forward to "Houdini Loosed Leela"? :twisted:

Re: TCEC Season 12 with Stockfish Zero aka Leela Chess Zero

Progress is clearly flattening out: http://lczero.org/ And the graph is exponential along the y axis. I am not in familiar with LeelaCZ but with LeelaZ. If the progress stalls they will switch to a bigger Network. Before that they will squeeze everything out of the small network because testing is ...
