Re: What is the purpose of chess engines?

To analyze chess positions in a search for truth. All the others are subsets, anyways. Yours is the most interesting answer, but really only because it itself poses a mass of questions on the underlying assumptions on what you mean by “truth”. And since it is -you- posing the question, another set ...

Re: Fritz 17

Please forgive me if I missed it, but what is the size of the neural network of Fat Fritz? It is a 256x20 Net. But the file on HDD is compressed - it can no be read by lc0 0.22.0, only by the FatFritz-Engine.exe Is there any sort of copyright or legal note attached to the weights file(s)? Or some k...

Re: Fritz 17

We buy FatFritz and everything else is not our problem. Some people are claiming that only one person needs to buy Fat Fritz and then they can distribute its weights so anybody else can use it without buying it. I don't think I've ever seen a precedent for a case like this, it would be piracy to di...

Re: Fritz 17

I don’t understand the question I asked if I can copyright the picture or not. That you don't know would show how you wouldn't know if Fat Fritz's weights could be copyrighted either.
