Re: New RomiChess, soon

The final results of this match may decide if new Romi will be released. If you don't release it you'd better stay at home even after the COVID is over. :lol: It does look ripe for release, Mike! Thanks in advance! :D Well I thought about changing ID with a corpse and in the future releasing new ve...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

A LC0+Bernstein Learning engine would be very interesting (the reason Leela was so useless in my 1.g4 games was that one would show it how a move she scored as -0.90 was actually -4.00, but going to a previous position it'd show -0.90 again, without a way to recognize this line lost from the root s...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

Yes, Fritz sparring features fall well short of expectations. I would like to take another look at MB's Weakfish with reduced strength settings.

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

I for one have always been interested in a chess program that can emulate human play, including some of the human weaknesses. The challenge is to emulate strong humans. The more a programmer is happy to sacrifice in playing strength, the easier it becomes to make it fake (weak) humans. Yes, I am bi...

I for one have always been interested in a chess program that can emulate human play, including some of the human weaknesses. From Feb 2013 There are two types of engines I would like to...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

Engines may not actually plan, but a combination of high-end search and a really good evaluation can produce what looks a lot like plans, for all intents and purposes. And the more one-sided you make the contest (e.g. give one engine 10 times the computer power of the other), the more it produces w...
