Re: Alphazero news

Until I can watch a TCEC superfinal style of match live on the internet, where the latest development version of SF plays AZ over 100 games starting from both sides of 50 different openings, where both engines run on whatever hardware their teams deem optimal, discussions like this are worthless. P...

Re: Alphazero news

I don't get some of the negative talk about A0 and the constant bickering about test conditions ... have you guys played through some of those games ??? Obviously there is something "game changing" happening. If you go through the games of some of the human chess geniuses of our time, on a really g...

Re: Alphazero news

What kind of reverse engineering do you understand? I've done reverse engineering through static analysis, both professionally and as a hobby. A lot of that was done without ever running a line of the program (e.g. decompiling Mac software without ever having owned a Mac). From an obfuscated progra...

For reverse engineering it need to make working the studied object.
No, this is incorrect.

From an obfuscated program one can get its source (or at least what works similarly ) if the program is running.

Re: 90 threads now on CCC 3

The TCEC contest has 44 threads (about half of CCC 3). So why not use 44 threads per engine and have pondering turned on? The extra 2 threads will make the server more responsive and avoid competition when the machine needs to do some internal upkeep. That way, you get double the quality with the g...

Re: Alphazero news

So you also think the developers of LC0 are not able to make reverse engineering on a Google product to gain information for the developing of LC0. I don't know how you infer that from my post. For reverse engineering it need to make working the studied object. As you stated without systems of Goog...

Re: Alphazero news

Do you think the developers of LC0 can get the binaries used by the team of A0? Unless Google's production systems have changed a lot since I worked there a few years ago, it's highly unlikely you'll be able to take production binaries built inside Google and get them to run on a regular install. T...

Shouldn't you be able to read uci options yourself?
I read the performance monitor of Windows Task Manager.
