Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

Beating all humans by giving the rules and the goal of Chess and letting it self-play to "understand" what is Chess about and how to play it well, is easy? The above is of course not easy and has only been achieved in the last few months. beating humans with computers with conventional a/b software...

Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

They are just demonstrating that using neural networks is inefficient. What can be wrong with that. Maybe less human work but enormous waste of electricity. If there is no knowledge something has to pay. This only holds for training/tuning/configuring part of course. For small problems it is do-abl...

Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

I don't know what you are babbling. They (the new testserver) showed by yesterday morning that in 500,000 fast self-games in half-a-day, one can train a network to beat 99% of humans, and by yesterday evening, after 1,500,000 fast self-games, in a-day-and-a-half, the network can be trained to beat ...

Re: Something goes wrong with lc0 since yesterday?

https://github.com/LeelaChessZero/lc0/wiki/lc0-transition The main server is still using the old lczero.exe client. The test server is using the new client. Most users should still use the main server, because the test server is still buggy, and we cannot support all users on it yet. We recently upd...

Re: Worlds most powerful supercomputer.

With all the GPUs in that system, yes. Would the supercomputer be useful for you in constructing tablebases and if so and you had it for a year, what would you be able to do with it. ? My generator doesn't benefit from GPUs or clusters, so I would have to write a new one and in my spare time that m...

Will all of this be useless vs AI such as Leela or Alpha Google?

Re: First Win by Leela Chess Zero against Stockfish dev

Yes it does. But CUDA version is roughly 10x faster. are you surprised with the win over stockfish ? Not at all, when you force SF to start with opening of -1.00 or worse (we don't even know since there is 0 information about actual game beside the moves we don't know what is SF depth, how much tim...

But that won’t be CUDA will it?
Does Leela not use OpenCL? Or is CUDA just more efficient for this sort of computing?
Yes it does. But CUDA version is roughly 10x faster.
