Re: Where are the funs of Leela?

I agree these NN are very strong. But I did a quick visit at CCC site for the currrent tourn, and was suprised to see Brainfish was demolishing Lc0 left and right. Don't know what's wrong but looks like it is vengeance time for A/B side. +7 -3 =182!! (94.79% draw rate) is hardly 'demolishing' - thi...

Re: OKE - Opening Knowledge Engines

I think you could create a very good statistics based book by using the lichees data. It's the crowd wisdom metaphor. True, you can't get a perfect book jut via statistics. But you can't get a perfect book any other way either. If you can build a perfect book then you can solve chess. We're not the...
