Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

Going back to the 4 man EGTB, it probably gain 5 or 6 Elo compared to none, going from 4 to 5 Man EGTB , perhaps gain 2 or 3 Elo, going from 5 man to 6 man EGTB maybe gain another 1-2 Elo and like wise with going from 6 to 7 man EGTB, another 1-2 Elo. And alway less at longer TC. As today's softwar...

Re: 7 Man Syzygy and SSD

Went though many of the decisive games - so far only found that had an impact on play, but it did not impact final result. 7q/2R4P/6k1/p7/Pp6/1K6/8/8 b - - 0 1 With 7 man syzygy, it plays Qxh7 immediately, with 6 man syzygy, it will play Qxh7 at depth 37 in about 11 seconds. With no egtb, it will b...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

It would be unrealistic to predict 20 elo per month gain once we catch normal Komodo, but the main point is that there is no obvious limit or sense that we are anywhere near any kind of peak. There was also no obvious limit for alpha zero, bit it started to struggle not soon after it just surpassed...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

I don't think that we can continue to gain five elo per month with regular Komodo. But we have been averaging close to fifty elo per month with MCTS, so even if this drops to something reasonable like twenty per month, after a year everyone should be happy! Do you think you can sustain 20 Elo per m...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

Yes, we released 12.3 this morning at Komodochess.com, which is free to subscribers and to purchasers of 12.2 since there were still some bugs unfixed by 12.2.2. It is virtually the same version now playing in division one of TCEC, and is an improved version of the one looking likely to qualify for...

You have no idea how is to publish in "Nature" and "Science" (Deep Mind publishing in both on this same theme). HGM has a "Nature" paper. I don't have, although I do have (few) papers in the best journals of physics (Phys. Rev. Letters, for example).
Do you have a link ?

Cannot talk about anything unannounced unfortunately! Not sure if you can answer this but can you see a possibility in the f...

Re: Scaling of Lc0 at high Leela Ratio

That +2 -0 =2 for SF10 at real LTC in these games with diverse developments, the double failure of Lc0 to convert, indicate again that scaling to real LTC might be not that good for Lc0. Which Lc0 version did you use? The most recent one v0.19.1 (it's just a version rename of v0.19.1-rc2 from 3 day...
