Re: New engine: Mora

"MORA" doesn't actually stand for anything, it is just the name of my cat who was happen to be at my desk when I started to code, so I decided to name the engine in her honor haha. Does anyone else find this explanation sort of... regressive? I'm not sure I follow. What's wrong with naming my engin...

Re: Understanding and Pushing the Limits of the Elo Rating Algorithm

How did they miss our work Paired Comparisons with Ties ? We compared three draw models and found out Davidson fits chess data best -- which they reframed as their own K-elo if I am not mistaken. Maybe I should alert the authors to our paper and makes them spell out what their unique contribution. ...

Re: PGN standard, its improvement and standardization

Also, I believe that UCI doesn't send a game result/end game flag to the engine, so if you are doing any post-game processing, you have to infer when this occurs, rather than being told explicitly.

Re: Guess the Poster CCC-WordCloud Fun Competition

In the attachments are six WordClouds composed of texts, by individual authors, posted into all CCC forums (less CTF) since records began. Each attachment has two WordClouds, each WordClouds labelled 1 to 6 CCC-wordcloud-1.0.png CCC-wordcloud-2.0.png CCC-wordcloud-3.0.png So, competition, can you i...

Re: Problem to Lc0....

Lc0 really doesn't do well on positions that is has no chance of ever having seen anything remotely like it, so it will probably have much more trouble than Stockfish. It's not even a possible chess position, and Lc0 only trains on chess games.

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Hi, What do you think about the claim that "Fat fritz" is stronger than Stockfish. Here is ChessBase article on this issue. I don't see it claiming anywhere that Fat Fritz is stronger, just highlighting that it found a move Stockfish missed. Since that is one of Lc0's fortes, it's not surprising th...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

When you ask children to make a summary of a movie, you don't care about how good are they about making movie summaries, all you care is for them to get used to following orders, orders that will get increasingly more nonsensical until they get a job and are willing to do whatever their boss demand...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

So is this kid someone that reads a title and a post and believes everything that she reads without critical thinking? I think this kid should learn to research a subject first before believing everything she reads, otherwise, I don't care about the fake news that this kid believes. The kid comes f...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

Allie is not a clone of Lc0. By far the most important part of code that Allie uses from Lc0 project is the cudann backend that Ankan wrote. ... That really should put this issue to bed IMO. I didn't claim that Allie was a clone. I'm just pointing out why variety is good to have, and the need for t...
