Re: chess programming - predictions for the next 5 years

We humans are really, really bad at predicting the future. Nah, the problem is we don't have enough humans making predictions. Have the entire population on Earth (that can communicate) predict how the world will be in 2023, being as detailed as possible, and just by sheer numbers, there'll be a co...

Who are the developers of Leela? I would like to get involved and see if I can contribute to helping them.
I think the best way to get involved is to join the Leela Discord? https://discord.gg/pKujYxD

Re: changing the 50 move rule to 5 move rule

Yeah, though I found out that if Houdini was shuffling aimlessly around the positions and needed to have FiftyMoveDistance tweaked to improve, that it was the wrong engine to use to analyze those positions, to begin with (on games you can't really change it on the fly and it seems 50 is best in most...

Re: Can't I run Lc0 on my GPU?

Have you tried it just for playing? I'm sending "go nodes 100" which would make it play a 100 nodes move. But sending "go depth 3" (play a depth 3 move) also makes it crash. Have you tried all 3 methods? (CPU; Open CL; CUDA) CPU method works. an Nvidia driver update fixed it. Thanks, will try updat...

Can't I run Lc0 on my GPU?

Hey, I have a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE / 7200 GS GPU, I downloaded both GPU-Based Leelas, and both crash. After running Client.exe to download the weights, the one from windows-opencl shows: http://funkyimg.com/i/2QUpy.png the one from windows-cuda shows: http://funkyimg.com/i/2QUpz.png Is Leela unabl...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Contests such as TCEC determine a champion. They do not determine who is strongest (like CCRL / CEGT) but everyone knows that. I don't know about that. I don't see Leela in CEGT at all, and Leela appears as 122th‑125th place in CCRL, which is clearly wrong. So CCRL / CEGT don't determine who is the...

Re: ShashChess

Thanks Andrea, I'm a big fan of the Petrosian checkbox, it's very scary when I'm analyzing with Stockfish 10 and it gives low eval and it shows the same move after move, while Petrosian shows some +1.60 score and then goes 1.70... 1.80... 1.90 until S10 blows up and agrees it's in trouble, I hadn't ...

Re: changing the 50 move rule to 5 move rule

Huh, I've played many "chessy" games with long maneuvres of pieces without pawn moves and captures and I'd find absurd if they were called draws just because the draw rule was in your face and you were forced to move a pawn or capture to avoid it. What about 20 move rule? AFAIK, this was investigate...

Re: Chess Partner 6

Meh, IIRC when I tried it out it was worse than 5.4, and since I had hacked the Engine Research Tool of 5.3 to change the graphics I saw no reason to move on. After Winboard engines died (you know what I mean) there was no reason to use ChessPartner anymore, and it seemed to follow Shredder GUI's fo...

Re: LC0 bad search and poor tactics

4...dxc4 is not a mistake at all Right. I recommend people that say "this is a mistake" or "that is a mistake" to play some correspondence chess against strong opponents. What you'll find it's amazing the amount of moves that aren't mistakes at all, not even those that clearly look like blunders. L...
