Re: Perfect play

Suppose we have the first ever perfect player: 32 men bases. I wonder how 32 men bases can play chess. If we assume that the starting position is draw, the 32 men bases would show the same score for 1.a3 and 1.e4: 0.00. So we would need an additional score or criteria, how good the winning chances ...

Re: The scaling with time of opening books

Hi Thomas When are you going to release the Commercial version ? Right now every Tom, Dick and Harry is using your excellent Cerebellum book, which you make with so much effort, for free....gives me no advantage. People who are prepared to pay money, should get an advantage over those who want only...

Re: The scaling with time of opening books

FYI Thomas Zipproth wrote: "at 12+1, is where Cerebellum really begins to shine, that's what the results showed so far." The Engine Masters say otherwise. That's not so obvious as it my seem. For example I myself (Gilgamesch) playing with Brainfish and Cerebellum ended 4th place on a quadcore, that...

Re: "Poor Fish": very hard test suite

That problems reminded me to my old hash browser function, where you can can at least see why the solution was not found. For example with: rn1q1rk1/2pbb3/pn2p3/1p1pPpp1/3P4/1PNBBN2/P1P1Q1PP/R4R1K w - - bm Nxg5; id "arasan19.16"; c0 "Dann Corbit, CCC 2015"; after: Nf3xg5 Be7xg5 Rf1f3 Bg5xe3 Rf3g3 Kg...

Re: Brainfish Numa 2 questions

1) How do I know if my CPU is Numa compatible ? It's a Core I5. 2) I have 2 versions of Ubuntu. The numa brainfish compiles well under ubuntu 14.04 (gcc 4.8). In contrast I get an error message at the end of the compilation under ubuntu 16.04 (gcc 5.4); something about a "lto-wrapper". If you have ...

Re: BrainFish vs book Chessbasse

This project started about 10 years ago, where we had a complete Chess GUI (still not released) and I had the idea to integrate an analysis tool for Grandmaster opening preparation and Correspondence chess playing. In the following years I played around with it a bit, using Rybka232a, Rybka3, and Ho...

Re: BrainFish vs book Chessbasse

This was indeed an interesting experiment, I will try to comment on it. Let me state first because there where some emotions in other threads about that topic, that I don't want to defend or promote something, I only like to discusss it in a scientific manner. What was done in principal in that expe...

Re: Brainfish, a new concept of a chess engine

PS (*) programmer of 'cerebellum is btw probably a certain Stefan Z, not Thomas; the latter appears to be only the commercial guy, so in relative terms he seems to know z about computer chess. The statement on the Team Tab of www.zipproth.de/Brainfish should be clear: Thomas Zipproth: Cerebellum Li...
