Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Hey Albert, what I want to know is this: is "Fat Fritz" stronger than Stockfish? Your training methodology sounds an order of magnitude more efficient than anything that has hitherto been devised, but if Fat Fritz's net strength isn't equal to 42850 (Lc0's T40 net) then it may mean that you undertra...

Re: Database snapshot

Nice work, Noob. Sounds like you've got 35-40 million games in that database. Any word on the composition, i.e. % human, % engine? This work would be greatly improved with a custom GUI that included your evaluation data, the empirical WLD data (flawed though it may be) and information on who played ...

Re: Question for Nelson Hernandez - TCEC power consumption

Sorry, I am completely uninvolved in the hardware side of things with respect to TCEC.

Re: Banned from TCEC chat

Thank you for that clarification. I agree with you; people with mod powers ought to maintain neutrality in order to not promote the idea that we are biased. The integrity of the competition is certainly far more important than who wins or loses. In Knight Moves defense he is not really in a position...

Re: Banned from TCEC chat

Mr. Stabel, We have done a thorough investigation into your participation in TCEC and frankly I am surprised that you replied to my challenge. You see, we have your complete contribution to TCEC chat from inception. Here it is, in chronological order: Feb 23 12:13:52PM I used the ARB system to beat ...

Re: Banned from TCEC chat

Well, Andreas, you certainly don't give us a chance to tell our side of the story if you don't even include what nick you used in TCEC. If you did, we could review the texts that led to banning and publish them for the community to judge for themselves. Or, if you would prefer to keep this a private...

Re: World Computer Chess Championship

Mimicking the limitations of human tournaments is just anachronistic I think you've nailed it squarely. And yet there is a need for a physical spectacle and press access for there to be press interest. So the solution is a two-part WCCC, first a Candidates tournament that would be run on the Intern...

Re: World Computer Chess Championship

Ulysses, the fact that David Levy is directly soliciting input from the current generation of programmers and computer chess fans in an effort to revive WCCC is a big change, and no matter how it plays out this dialogue is a good thing. The only anodyne recommendation I have is that any competition ...

Re: World Computer Chess Championship

Is it ICGA's position that allegedly Fruit-derivative, Rybka-derivative Fritz would be not be allowed as an entrant, as its author remains "banned for life"? The question is academic as I reckon there would be no interest in participating on his part or Chessbase's. Nonetheless, a policy statement w...
