An opponent for humans: Bad Gyal

This is nothing for people who like to watch engines play each other. This is a lc0 net (48x5, so good for cpu or gpu) that combines the imperfection of lichess opponents with a moderate amount of sf10 smarts.

Enjoy.

Re: Leela Nets for Human Training and "Style"

I disagree..what we would like to see is infomation (NN or nets) that move chess theory forward..we seek the answers to the most complex (complicated) of positions....we reject the boring and mundane moves of the 'generalist'.. we seek the innovative solutions to the complex problems of "yesterday"...

Re: Leela Nets for Human Training and "Style"

While this is all very interesting, training nets to play like a particular player isn't really what my approach can do. It's more like "speculative", "conservative," etc.

Re: Alpha Zero vs. Leela Zero

Been there, done that, first with the t10 nets, then the t30. If you search the forum, you’ll even find a discussion about this topic.

Here a wiki page from November, 2018 declaring victory over sf8. https://github.com/dkappe/leela-chess-w ... ct-Success

Leela Nets for Human Training and "Style"

I've been experimenting with different ways of training Leela-style nets so they produce different styles of play, intended for human vs engine training on CPU. I've hit upon a good approach, but am struggling with how to "measure" the style. Surely this problem must have been addressed in these for...

Re: Is Blas, or OpenCL really the right way to go

You are assuming that Komodo MCTS is using a NN. I don’t believe that is the case. No I am not. But I am wondering if Blas or OpenCL are really the best options for CPU that LC0 has. OK. You had me confused. If we use a NN for leela, then the best way of computing that is a really, really fast line...

Re: Is Blas, or OpenCL really the right way to go

I've been wondering is Blas or OpenCL really the right way to go for LC0 on CPU? Because when I look at the performance of Komodo MCTS on CPU, Komodo appears to be light years ahead of LC0 as far as MCTS is concerned. Of course Komodo is no match for LC0 on GPU, but on CPU, LC0 would get smashed by...

My fervent hope is that the whole slimy ship should sink quietly into the TCEC is only a little slimy, and it’s more of a dingy than a ship with its own issues of following its own rules. :-) TCEC, unfortunately, has all the excitement of a file copy in a server room.

Re: LC0 For Android!!! History Made!!

Weak? I suppose against stockfish. But pick up the 48x5 network and even a GM won’t beat it on an android device. https://github.com/dkappe/leela-chess-w ... d-Networks
