Re: Next Komodo vs human match

Sixth game was Gilden's best game, but ultimately yet another loss. He reached a normal opening position in the Caro-Kann with White just missing a knight, and it was difficult to imagine how Komodo would even make a fight of it. Komodo managed to trade queen for two rooks, but was still quite lost...

Re: Lazy-evaluation of futures for parallel work-efficient Alpha-Beta search

Introduction A few weeks ago, I theorized that GPUs can effectively perform work-efficient alpha-beta search. It led to a long discussion elsewhere on the internet, which pretty much ended with "If you think its possible, then you should do it". A couple of weeks later, here I am today ready to lea...

Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

You seem to be saying that there is low/no correlation correlation between the number of TB hits that occur in the search and what shows up on the board. I'm not buying it. I'm assuming that what appears on the board has a VERY high correlation with what appeared in the search. But, if you have evi...

Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

We should be incredibly grateful for the efforts of Bojun Guo (aka noobpwnftw) and Ronald de Man for the stupendous effort of building the 7 man syzygy files and for making the code public and freely available for use. It was very altruistic on the part of both parties. I am sure every one will sec...

Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

7-man tablebases are large enough that most people will have to make special accommodations to obtain and use them. Approximately 80% of these endgames are seen less than 1 game in 50,000 and ~54% are seen at less than 1 game in a million. These file are huge! I don't know what the total size is bu...

Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

But perfect play once a 6-men ending has been reached on the board is only a small part of the story. The phase before it is much more important (especially at longer time controls where it will indeed be rare that the engine can't figure out a 6-men ending on its own). My apologies for getting off...

Just came across this paper.

Re: Hyper bullet chess

Apologies for being off topic, but I read Victor stated sometime ago that an 8 man Lomonosov was in the works and that you were in contact with him back in 2016. Do you know if they have any plans to start creating these tables in the near future. ? Off topic and wrong forum - ;>) - but that's ok w...
