Help for Syzygy probe?

My FEN string is: "4k3/3bb3/4b3/8/5p2/8/8/4K3 w - - 0 1". This is clear lost for White. https://www.dropbox.com/s/hos7vld34495nen/ABCD.png?dl=0 In my session, I had KBBBPvK.rtbw and KBBBPvK.rtbz in the path. The Python package (chess.syzygy) was able to probe it (-2 is the result). However, the Fath...

Re: A database for learning evaluation functions

I'm indeed doing something like that. I prefer all three: 1. Get high-quality games from CCRL 2. Get low-quality games from FICS 3. Randomly generate It's assumed that the network will be able to learn from high quality positions while not biased away from very common club-level positions. Randomly ...

In Giraffe, the weights for the evaluation are the parameters, but I don't see anything like that mentioned in the paper. Q2: What's the new alpha-beta algorithm? It looks...

Re: Rebel to be reacquired by Ed

iOS does not allow one process to launch another process. So it is impossible for a GUI to fire up an engine. Both the GUI and the engine would have to be the same executable.
