Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

Something else I would suggest for future Nemorino versions is a rewrite of the neural network inference code from the ground up so that the inference code isn't a copy of Stockfish's code. There are quite a few people around who are unhappy with your current inference code being copied from Stockf...

Re: Just wonderful ... what the programmer of SlowChess do!

I do think the download of a complete program (GUI + engine + opening book + bitbases/nets etc.) is a category where there is space for some strong programs. (Though I realize that even if SlowChess was 200 elo stronger most chess players would still want to analyze with or watch Stockfish & Leela ...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

Mike, I felt that he was evolving in a known paradigm, chasing SF -- similar approach, similar methodology, and, to be honest, I thought it was in part a waste of talent (learning aside). Now, he is on his own path, and with his energy I am sure results could come fast. Anyway, I hope he will contin...

Re: Final Release of Ethereal, V12.75

I think that making NN for specialized parts of the evaluation, and combining it with more classical methods is a very good idea. In my view that would be something that makes Andrew's work truly unique and different, and it could be the way to the next step in engine development. Anyway, all these ...

Re: Winter

I somehow missed this thread, being at work for a few days. Downloaded the new Winter and it is indeed faster. I hope I will have time in the next few days to test it and analyze with it to see if it means changes in the way it plays. Anyway, I hope you will continue to improve Winter your own way. ...

Re: A Crossroad in Computer Chess; Or Desperate Flailing for Relevance

(...) I worry about the future of Computer Chess. I see a timeline where a dozen engines use something very similar to Stockfish's methods. They all shoot up in elo. New developers, people working on their own innovations, are disheartened. They ask themselves why they toil away on their new ideas ...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Hi matejst, Do you know Any news about Xiphos? It has been 9 months since Milos released a new version. Have you tried and talk to him ? Damir, I have no news about Xiphos. I am sorry I cannot help you. And I have not tried to contact Milos -- I feel it would have been a bit rude from my part. I ho...
