Re: Trying out the Leela Hybrid engine (NN with AB)

A question to you: Where is /boost/ directory and process.hpp file (for eg.) ? Your source does not contain them. You get boost from here: https://www.boost.org/ Thanks. Can you succeeded to compile the binary of Leelafish from source? For LC0 no need "Boost" libraries so I find its using peculiar ...

Re: Trying out the Leela Hybrid engine (NN with AB)

Hello, I'm KillerDucky the author of https://github.com/killerducky/lc0/wiki/LeelaFish thanks for testing it! Those using the engine know but to emphasize for others, the AuxEngine can be any UCI engine. It's only natural that Stockfish is the first choice, and implied by the name Leelafish. :wink:...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Only some note to your dialog: 1, Nobody wrote about Chessbase or other classical type of chess books. The dimension of a chess book depend on the technique of its coding. A pure digital book is far smaller than a commercial .dtg book. 2, As in the games played by LC0 without outer opening book prov...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Leela learns patterns in self play games. In new positions she tries to find this patterns. That's why she is running faster with gpu which are optimized for calculating images. Leela don't save one single position in it's NN. She found something in the position which made her believe is winning. W...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

There is no any "spectacular" and there is no any "plan" on the side of Leela. In reality the position after 19.-c4 and the good continuation is in the 32930net of Leela. To prove this I used the weak GTX 1060 to find the 20.Bg6 move. From net30100 to net32000 Leela want to move 20.Be4, 20.Bxc4, 20...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

I think Lc0 is just giving us an idea of proof of concept in NN as was shown with A0 with Google. The potential is there, but to be honest Lc0 would not be even on my top 10 list of engines to use if I wanted to analyze a chess game. At least not a stand alone engine. It can miss one move tactics t...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

... I think that SF even on 1000 cores would still lose to Lc0 some pretty spectacular games. I mean just look at yesterday's loss ... out of the opening and each engine plays a few moves by itself and you have this position [d]r2q1k1r/3b1pp1/1p2p2p/p2pP2P/P1p2P2/3B4/2P1QBP1/R3K2R w KQ - 0 20 SF ha...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

How can one know whether the engines are playing on equal terms? How can you compare CPU and GPU and state you've found a balance? Nohow. There are only subjective methods to make comparison. Moreover AB engines are made basically for playing middle games and endgames. An AB engines will be banishe...
