Re: Use Cute Chess variant to play gomoku

Thanks for the explanation about the drop pieces, Mr. Muller. I suspect that you are misled by the screenshot I took. If a "turn" means a move, then you only need 2 coordinates to describe a move, which is basically just the file and rank of square that the new stone was placed. This is exactly the ...

Re: Use Cute Chess variant to play gomoku

I would think that most Chess GUIs that support variants would allow you to play Gomoku; it is just a game with piece drops, where you start with all pieces in hand. There are no side effects to the moves (as there would be in Go, where stones would disappear when surrounded). I don't think WinBoar...

Use Cute Chess variant to play gomoku

Hi all, No sure it is a valid topic for the forum (let me know if it is not, and I will remove this post). Computer gomoku (also known as "five-in-a-row") has be developing fast in the past years. But there is no such a tool like Cute Chess for computer gomoku, especially cutechess-cli which allows ...

An ELO drop caused by futility pruning margin when switching to a different evaluation function

Hi all, Recently I am doing an experiment with Senpai v1 engine by replacing its original evaluation function to the evaluation function of Stockfish, just curious about how much ELO gain I can get. I use the 40 moves in 5 minutes time control, and play 400 games in each experiment. The original Sen...

Re: Deep Pink: a chess engine using deep learning

Hi Matthew, Thanks for sharing the project of Giraffe! I am just trying to replicate the experiments of training a NN evaluator for Giraffe. The first few iterations running looks fine. I just need to find a faster machine for more iterations (If just using i thread, a iteration will take 23 mins on...

Re: Deep Pink: a chess engine using deep learning

Hi Gerd, thank your for the suggestions and links! Yes, I agree with you. After making this post I found that there are some more refined work like Matthew's Giraffe and DeepChess that has existed. The work on Deep Pink is still in an early stage IMO. Also thanks for all the comments and discussion ...

Re: Deep Pink: a chess engine using deep learning

Hi Gerd, just realize that it is an old post from 2014. I saw it on Kaggle's facebook page, which was rebloged by Yhat three days ago. I guess the only thing "new" might be on the source code, where the author made some minor change until last spring.

Deep Pink: a chess engine using deep learning

Just found this blog post about deep learning in chess, by Erik Bernhardsson http://blog.yhat.com/posts/deep-learning-chess.html And the source code: https://github.com/erikbern/deep-pink It mentioned an engine "Deep-Pink", which includes a trained neural network model (for evaluation function). May...

Re: An MPI perft program

Hi Daniel, Just want to ask one more question about Scorpio by the way: is it possible to turn the code about SMP search off in Scorpio, but still keep the cluster search code? These days I am aslo trying to make a Scorpio-perft version running on the clusters. Turning the SMP search off might help ...
