Re: Fritz 17

If Scorpio is not a Leela clone, what other explanation do you have for a mid-tier engine with an unreadable code base and a rampant history of crashes, bugs, and other play limiting or preventing issues, suddenly shooting up almost overnight to become one of the most powerful engines featured in T...

Re: Fritz 17

They eventually gave up on that model, since (early on) they tried to apply it as a license to things like bison (if bison generates a grammar, then the things using the grammar are also GPL was attempted or something along those lines). But then they discovered that nobody wanted to use their stuf...

Re: Fritz 17

It is interesting that you consider Scorpio to be a derivative of Lc0. I strongly suspect that Daniel Shawul would take exception to this description. He is not alone in his thoughts. Daniel or the original poster? If the latter, then you’ve produced a real head scratcher. Is leela chess, as the fi...

Re: Networks for lc0

So either even very weak a/b engines can crush humans these days or Mean Girl has a very anti-human style. I’d say it has a very human style, which is “anti-human,” as opposed to “inhuman.” I’ve gotten feedback from several players that they find playing against it makes them stronger. That’s very ...

Re: Networks for lc0

Any estimation of Mean Girl's (32x4) 25 node ELO? 2500 Rapid ELO seems hard to believe. Not a lot of players seem willing to engage in rated games, so that rating is based on a small sample size, Full on SF goes through it like a hot knife through butter, but humans struggle against it. I suspect t...

Re: Networks for lc0

I’ve championed the cause of running lc0 on weak hardware, like integrated gpu, cpu, or even Android. It is possible to get that style of play on very modest hardware. The best small net (128x10 as opposed to 256x20 or larger) is LD2. It gets very decent performance on cpu as long as you aren’t play...

Re: Fritz 17

I don't know if that's "expert" enough for you, but I never wanted to be taken for one. There's a lot of those running around, I just try to bring some common sense into the conversation, something which isn't in so much abundance nowadays. Common sense? You’re clearly not a lawyer (insert obligato...

Re: Fritz 17

The people to whom you sold copies of GPL software are just as free as you are to make copies and sell them for whatever price they feel is right, including a price equal to zero. Of course the network weights are not covered by the GPL but by whatever license ChessBase applies to it. Of course? If...
