All the credits goes to Dann Corbit who selected the pack of 100 positions.
I had a lot of help from CCC, who helped me debug it. There were 3 or 4 attrocities in there for the 1st version, and a few other iffy ones.

Re: OKE - one year after

Looks like SF 12 has almost caught LC0 by 5 seconds.

Re: How do NN's work with non-graphic intensive engines?

But perhaps my question is a bit more basic: I have fire up SF NN at move 15 of a game. This is a position that is surely not in any existing NN - no position found in my Chessbase DB either. Just what happens? I guess that is what I am getting at. Ronald's explanation in excellent. In more basic t...

Re: This is not the solution you are looking for

Here is one place to find the test set: https://github.com/sylvinus/chessathome/blob/master/test/public/positions/epd/mg.epd Have you thought about making a web interface to your DB? A simple "search by fen" would be fine with me. Then just display all the info you have on the FEN. Don't you just h...

Re: This is not the solution you are looking for

I found this position in my list of things to solve and noticed the published move wasn't the best. r4r2/p6k/1p2p1p1/2q5/5P1P/4P3/6Q1/3R1R1K w - - The FEN contained the comment "Lilienthal-Dr.Rey Zaragoza 1934", but I have no idea where I got it. Anyways, the published move of (f5) draws, but the b...

Re: How do NN's work with non-graphic intensive engines?

The NN (using the GPU or using the CPU) is recognizing patterns. It is not doing any graphical work, in reality. A giant network has a lot more work to do and the unbelievable compute power of a GPU is used to calculate the result with really large networks. The problem with GPU computation is mostl...
