Re: TCEC news, believe it or not (no ifs or buts)

Still 2100 elo engine :roll: Lesson to be learned here: if you say a stupid thing once and later admit you were mistaken, no one will give you any trouble for it. If you insist on repeating said stupid thing over and over again while refusing to engage with any semblance of counterargument, you wil...

Re: First Win by Leela Chess Zero against Stockfish dev

the perception by the community might well be that nothing is happening and that progress has stalled, which is completely understandable. My perception is that maybe too much is happening at once, and that probably because of that, progress has nearly stalled. Well, I'm currently testing ID 25 of ...

Re: First Win by Leela Chess Zero against Stockfish dev

maybe some here can elaborate on corrections applicable to 3000+ engine-engine matches (if any) but this site popped up when i googled 'elo calculator': https://wismuth.com/elo/calculator.html#rating1=3600&rating2=3300&best_of=1 so to just throw some numbers out there, according to this site if pla...

Re: Ethereal 10.00 beats Leela ID372

LOL. Always funny to see an engine author getting so salty over LC0 that they resort to posting something like this. :lol: Classy.

Cheers, Andrew. Look forward to Ethereal's thrashing at the hands of Leela in S13. :wink:

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

If you have anything constructive to contribute, feel free to do so on Github. Your contribution is load of crap in this thread. Go write hello world then come back and lecture me. This is a great way to make sure that what you have to say is 100% ignored by the devs. Of course, you may not actuall...

Re: Lczero stalled in progress?

Because infinite growth is infeasible and saturation always happens sooner or later. ;) What you are actually asking is why progress is really not in line with expectations of so many ppl, but that is kind of question for psychologist so you kind of posed it in a wrong forum ;).

Re: Leela Chess 1/2 would be stronger than LC0

The Lella Chess project is trying to "replicate" the Alpha Zero project. The Alpha Zero project is based on very different concepts from classical AB engines and they did not use AB engines to train the networks. Remember the A0 team isn't stupid nor ignorant, they are pretty smart . The A0 team pr...
