Re: Scorpio vs SF11: at last a win

This game had some eval ups and downs, but Medium Ender was able to take the handoff from the main net and convert.

Scorpio vs SF11: at last a win

It’s been hard going, but at last Medium Ender converted an opposite colored bishop ending against SF11.

Re: SF 11 vs T60 Lc0

Rather than trying to pick a pointless fight, the “new” parameters can be found here: http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=72854 Of course the people that “know”, know that a big grid search for parameters at different time controls is expensive, long winded and not fun. That’s why these ...

Re: a crying shame (re: self-learning engines)

Finally, I also find the need to avoid human thinking in the evaluation a big loss: the automatic tuning methods were followed by neural networks, and a big part of the human dimension of chess was lost. I don't think it was a real improvement -- although, from another point of view, it was a drama...

Re: a crying shame (re: self-learning engines)

Why not? It could use both. A NN is as strong as it gets after it's done training, a Learning one would improve over time (in analysis of positions) without having to download a new net. If one focuses great resources into making Leela Learn the best evals on a given variation, who knows if it'll p...

What will you do if the source code is not available? Are you going to knock on his door with a gun loaded? 8-)
Yikes! How do you go from a nice, peaceful request to such a bloodthirsty concept?

Re: Alpha subZero - NN for CPU

I’ve requested the source code over at chess2u from the “developer” per the terms of the GPL.

With all the antivirus warning signs and client.exe (which should be a golang program used only for self-play training but apparently is required), I wouldn’t touch this with a ten foot pole.

Re: The “Kryptonite” position

It looks like possible problem in Leela search. At some point it realizes (quite quickly with Sergio net) that Kxh4 is losing but still lists it at the first option till visit counts catches up: 1. 13 [+0.00] 1.Kxh4 Kf4 2.g3+ Kf5 3.d6 Ne6 4.d7 Ng5 5.g4+ Kf4 6.d8=Q Nf3# 2. 13 [+53.30] 1.d6 Kxd6 2.Kx...
