Re: predicting choices of weak humans

If you don't see it, you just don't see it. Humans don't see anything with 100% accuracy. 64 squares is too many to see at once. Thus we divide the board in to little pieces. Rarely do we go through all the pieces of the puzzle. Some are just left behind as it takes too much time. We aren't machines.

Re: Where did all these 3400 engines come from?

There are many draws in computer chess because chess is a theoretical draw and engines, unlike humans, make very few horrific errors. Humans suck at chess. We've sucked at it long enough that the chess literature is full of "brilliant" wins (i.e., horrific blunder-filled losses). If chess engines h...

So far I have 3.7 million human-human games between at least 2200 elo rated players.
Why was 2200 elo chosen as the cutting point? I believe it's equivalent to 1900 elo of chess.com.
The higher you go, the closer the ratings get to chess.com's. At least Lichess 2500 is already 2500 on chess.com

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

Databases are meant for humans to find what other humans are often playing. humans also want to know what moves are best. The thing is that kind of analysis only improve our chess by 1-5%. If I have to spend 20 hours to find what's the best move in one particular position, it obviously becomes a ra...

Re: Leela Nets for Human Training and "Style"

One simple and automatic way is thru personality. Example Fischer, collect positions (with some criteria) where Fischer is to move, make it as a test suite where the bm in the epd is Fischer's move in the actual game, then measure the engine's performance by counting how many moves match the bm in ...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

It's really hard to believe the Italian would be bad for white. White is up a tempo after all. As I see it the best line for black is to just play what Ding plays and play a5 instead of the usual a6 lines.
