Re: Sensational! Y.Ossipov talking about STRELKA

Vasik Rajlich told: I went through the Fruit 2.1 source code forwards and backwards and took many things. This is obvious that means: Ideas and not the code of Fruit. He(Vasik Rajlich) also said: "Yes, the publication of Fruit 2.1 was huge. Look at how many engines took a massive jump in its wake: ...

Re: Father(The Human) is eating to Rybka 2.3.2a mp(Machine)

Thanks for the game!
Very instructive as always.....

I wonder when "normal" Chess engines will learn to avoid such positions and win..... I'm not speaking about special settings like anti-human etc, but the default Chess engines.....

Re: Sensational! Y.Ossipov talking about STRELKA

hi Evgenii i am not sure which is harder for me to understand...the original Russian or the Google Translation :wink: :D :D Well the most important parts is that he says he started from Fruit's source and rewrote it using bitboards and then studied about 20% of Rybka's code by disassembling it and ...

Re: Elvis has left the building Steve and Terry....

Turthfully Chris, I'm not that interested in this unending saga...sorry. Damn, and I do my best to make my puzzles difficult for you. The always used argument is that in most other positions they do not have identical or even comparable evaluations..... But my opinion is that ALL engines(that do no...

Re: Why Vasik Rajlich keep the silence?

Exactly - the onus is not on Vas to do anything if he doesn't want to. He has done nothing wrong in this affair, so why should he be copping the crap? Wrong. He has created Rybka so he is responsible for all these things happening here! :D And instead of working improving Rybka, he should answer to...

Re: Poll: Do we need a "Strelka is/isn't a clone"

This is getting ridiculous. Right now, I count ten different threads about the Strelka/Rybka issue on the first page of the "General Topics" subforum. This is the second time that this forum becomes a Rybka forum. This time is not a pure Rybka forum, but a Strelka-Rybka forum, but the whole noise i...

Re: No rumors, Strelka is a clone...

This is nothing but a morbid obsession. Every work is based on something, no one lives on a desert island. Yes everything is based on something previously discovered by others. But this is irrelevant to the clone cases. One can use the ideas from open source engines. But he can't use the code of ot...

Re: No rumors, Strelka is a clone...

The fact that such a definition would make Rybka, Hiarcs as also every other closed source engine, a possible clone of an open source engine, does not mean we should reject the definition. Because the arguments of the definition are logic one's. Why do you believe that one person can not take the s...

Re: No rumors, Strelka is a clone...

There is also the case that a clone can produce different results from the original engine in ALL positions. That is the case of taking an engine's source and make heavy modifications, that is build your engine on other's ideas and code. This would still be a clone..... Interesting. So maybe Rybka ...
