Re: Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human

I think I am kind of depressed over the fact that I am not a good chess player. At least I can't stop obsessing over the fact that I will never become a chess champion. None of my dreams in life ever came true. When I was young I wanted to be a successful mathematical/theoretical physicist but I als...

Re: Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human

He also told me that to become a GM you MUST start younger than 8 years old - so that chess is your "mother tongue" and deep tactics/calculation comes naturally in adulthood. Of course there are outliers, but these were his "rules" - it's a shame. He told me once "You have a natural feel for the ha...

Re: Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human

I think I'm leaving chess. The chances that I will become a Grandmaster (2500 FIDE) or even a Master (2300 FIDE) is very very low. I'm not a good player and chess requires certain talents that I just don't have. I won't be surprised to find out if the best chess players (like Kasparov, Karpov, Tigra...

Re: Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human

Modern desktop computers are probably not fast enough and have not enough memory to truly surpass human world champion chess capability. My computer for example only uses 6 physical cores and only 8 Gigs of RAM. I believe that's not enough to truly surpass the world champion. However I believe that ...

Re: 20 Years Later, Humans Still No Match For Computers

I'm not so good at chess despite spending years trying to figure out the game. But from my own experience I can definitely tell that computers still have major weaknesses. Chess engines don't understand chess strategy so well and they can't plan so well as humans can. True chess engines are good at ...

Re: Estimated Elo Perfect Play

Chess engines are still very far from perfect play. Chess engines still have certain weaknesses for example: 1. The understanding of the opening and opening theory. There are certain principles of play which need to be followed in order to play the opening successfuly like rapid development of the p...

Re: Can A GM And Rybka Beat Stockfish?

The evidence shows that a very strong human chess player like Valeri Lilov, Gary Kasparov, Magnus Carlsen or even someone like Boris Gelfand, Vadim Milov or Ruslan Ponomariov can beat Stockfish even without the help of Rybka. Chess engines have limits in their chess understanding and how far they ca...

Re: Why is stockfish so smart?

seriously. look at these games. in two of the four games, nakamura was a pawn up right from the start. a draw seems hard enough to reach for a super grandmaster. and chess engines getting stronger almost every day. humans lost this battle years ago (but at the same time this accomplishment is also ...
