Re: The problem with adjudication based on score

While I agree with you these situations are very rare and works both ways. Adjudication massively speeds up the process of testing, and if only 1% of the games produce wrong results it's still worth to adjudicate. Speed vs accuracy. I agree with your point that these situations are so rare that it'...

Re: Mike Adams - introducing myself as a Chess Programmer

Ok. I see depth and search time. And main line beneath. Evaluation would be nice ... Ah S means score.
Thank you. Now it makes more fun.

Re: Mike Adams - introducing myself as a Chess Programmer

Hi Mike. 40/120 now there. But I see no thinking. And sometimes app crashes.
How is thinking meant: showing info while computing?

Re: Mike Adams - introducing myself as a Chess Programmer

Hi, hello mike. Nice to read an introduction ,
I downloaded the android version on my mobile phone,
I would like to have 40/120 time control and an optional info screen under the board with
Time search depth score and a little main line and NPS
That would be nice if this is possible.

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

That is your interpretation.
I do not subscribe to it.
Better programming artificial intelligence then artificial stupidity.
Most of the progress in computerchess comes from hardware progress.

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

I am only disappointed that the variance reduced and no alternative or new approaches happen. I know Stockfish is a clever program. But it is search based. And i think this is not the way to go. With search Stockfish outcomputed any opponent to an elo level that is far away from the best human chess...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

So what is the future?
Making Stockfish 11 that is 40 elo stronger?
Followed by Stockfish 12 that is again 30 elo better.
Or waiting until the NN beat Stockfish with another graphic card ?



The future is about elo. And it is about search. It is about hardware.

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

As I said before, you maybe don’t get it, so I repeat: Why stockfish needs millions or hundred thousands of NPS ? Why ? Because it has no clue about chess. It is the the materialistic bean counting method. When the programmer has no clue about chess, he uses “smart algorithms” for search instead of ...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

It does not ? It beated Stockfish. With a software from 1984, That’s 35 years old. If Mephisto III has no chess understanding when using 1-3 NPS on 8 bit cpu or 3-5 on 16 bit cpu, How did it get the championship title against stupid opponents that did 1500 or more NPS ? Factor 500 or 300 (depending ...
