Re: Alphazero news

Cerebelleum best book lines give even worse diversification to SF8 than SF8 itself on 44 threads. I have no confidence in that result. "Human Openings" given in A0 preprint (those 12) were heavily favoring A0, and I have again no confidence in that result. I don't even know how many openings they c...

Re: My non-OC RTX 2070 is very fast with Lc0

It is possible the CPU is also a limiting factor. This is a Sandy Bridge generation i5-2500k, In a week I will test with a more powerful one and then share the results. Despite being Sandy Bridge these are still relatively fast 4 cores, no way 45k nps would be a bottleneck on 4 cores. You can check...

Re: Alphazero news

There are two possible reasons for why Lc0 would lose more against SF if SF has a book. 1) Like you said, Lc0 is more specialized and doesn't play a diverse set of openings as well. 2) The quality of book moves are just higher in general than what Lc0 can come up with at short time control. So why ...

Re: My non-OC RTX 2070 is very fast with Lc0

Thanks, I was expecting 1.5-1.6 faster, and it comes at little below 1.5 faster. Clearly not the best value. I hope, in some 6-9 months I will have a Ryzen 8 or 16 core machine with 2 x RTX 2070. I am not sure about the effective speed-up from 2 GPUs, it can be anything from 1.4 to 1.95. Nobody see...

Simple reason is that I expect the opening moves of LC0 to be improved at long time control
You can expect whatever you want, but there is zero factual evidence that supports your expectation in this particular case.

Re: LCzero network

Nets vary in speed, even among test30 nets there is quite a variarion. Strength is measured at same time control, not same number of nodes. Same time control could mean different number of nodes. Interesting. Do you know why? I guess most assume same-size NN = same speed. Different net, different p...

Re: Alphazero news

BS. You obviously never worked in a multi billion dollar company research department. You never get outright rejection, never, not for Science not for Nature, not for any other journal. You have no idea what you are talking about. As someone who exclusively spent a whole life in academia and had ne...

Re: Alphazero news

That is not true. It's definitely possible to get the paper accepted without reviewers all being happy . But the publication policies of Nature & Science probably shouldn't be the main topic here. Oh yeah? How many Science or Nature papers do you have to your name that did not have the approval of ...

Re: Alphazero news

Is it because people who wrote those 'fully decent' papers are not Google-branded? But in my view a 'decent paper' is still a decent paper even if it is published on a morning newspaper. You have no idea how is to publish in "Nature" and "Science" (Deep Mind publishing in both on this same theme). ...
