Speed is not everything. Sometimes evaluation replaces depth.

Re: SIMEX 2.1

Hiarcs is a unique chess program, I guess mchess is similar. But we cannot Test it because it is not uci, I like programmer who go their own ways and ideas, I remember when I first tested an Ed Schroeder chess engine, rebel and mm4 and later mm5. And many others followed. I personally find Monte Car...

Re: 29 Alpha-Beta's against Leela...

I am talking about the fact that these engines have no clue about chess but they are capable to search 40 plies. As if this is the sense of chess. I can buy a car that has 30 PS or a car that drives with 300 ps. Yes the car with 300 ps can drive faster. But is this the target ?? It’s only a waste of...

Re: 29 Alpha-Beta's against Leela...

My brain is also doing massive amounts of calculations when I play chess, but my mind only looks onto the board without building huge search trees. The gag is that humans do play chess with eyes seeing patterns and trajectories, while computers search into the 30-40 search today and do huge combina...

Re: 29 Alpha-Beta's against Leela...

But why do we need a 30 or 40 depth search to play a game of chess. It sounds to me like using 30 tons of tnt to open a door we could easily open by putting a key into the lock that fits. Yes we can use 64 CPU cores and compute up to depth 45 . But why ?? What do you want to demonstrate with this ??...

Re: Where did all these 3400 engines come from?

Ed, ist difficult for me to disagree with you. Your chess programs dominated computerchess from 1986 until whatever. My full respect for this. As usual. But i want to disagree because I think we need another level now. We need chess engines doing a plan. IMO its bringing computerchess into another l...
