Re: SPCC: Testrun of Stockfish 190531 finished

I wonder if Allie on a small net vs Leela on the same net would change their ELO relative to each other. Since Allie's search is so different, does she want a bigger or a smaller net (than Lc0?) On cccc Allie plays with the Leelenstein NNs, which have normal 20x256 size. Perhaps, I will try a bigge...

And a big shame that SF doesn't seem to be progressing.

Re: SPCC: Testrun of Stockfish 190531 finished

Thank you for your continued testing. Also I'm wondering if different net sizes behave differently on Allie than on Leela since Allie has a different (and faster) search. Would it be possible to test Allie vs Leela on one of the smaller (distilled) nets too or a 10x128 net? https://github.com/dkappe...

Re: Why are super top professional Go players so stupid?

Good to see that Leela changed from 20x256 to 40x256 net, because at the end bigger is better :mrgreen:. Depends on hardware balance. They don't seem to use CUDA (cuDNN) anywhere, only OpenCL, my speeds are not impressive on my RTX 2070. Might be due to batch sizes used not helping much with cuDNN,...

Re: Why are super top professional Go players so stupid?

Well there are more possible moves in Go (than in Chess) so naturally it would be logical to assume that a GO player with imperfect knowledge is more likely to blunder than (for example) a Chess player with imperfect knowledge.

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

A new possible challenge for LC0. in his latest book Garry Kasparov still states that “Centaur mode” is still the best expression of strength in chess games. I am doubtful after witnessing how LC0 defeated Stockfish. In order to test Kasparov's ipothesis I would suggest the following challenge: GM ...

In CCC 8 final 90 core SF is beating Lc0 now.
Slim margins though.

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

I do wonder, how strong is the current net on a CPU. On CCRL 40/40 Lc0 0.20.1 w36089 is the 35th strongest single core engine. (SF2.2.1 level) On 40/4 it\s significantly weaker. Wonder how much ELO the latest net (and executable) has in CCRL40/40 conditions. I guess since Lc0 scales pretty well with...

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

Still awesome that even with so few lines, it still would have been the strongest engine back in the late 90s/early 2000s.

Re: Elements of the ULTIMATE Chess GUI?

WinBoard/XBoard support time odds as well, of course. Just not different TC modes. Not because it would be difficult to program, but because it seems completely useless, or even worth discouraging. It's interesting to test with different TCs. Even if it has no real use. Just different numbers. It's...
