Re: Training with RomiChess in console mode

100 more games Romi - Spike, Spike without book. This time Romi managed to get 9% which equals 150 Elo better. Of course the sample is to small but we have some indication. If it's the learning or Spike's missing book which have most impact I don't know.

Re: Training with RomiChess in console mode

I set Romi to 2 ply and I won against Romi easily. Then Romi played my moves back against me in the next game. Okay, so Romi could work by learning from a PGN Database from the site where one plays, then Romi would play the winning moves of the people from there, and, at least until a novelty is pl...

Re: I Got youy, Norman Brando

I must confess I have never used Romi for anything, not even tournaments. This learn discussion made me curious so I downloaded Romi and tried some fast tournaments under Arena. It worked fine with the internal books in Arena, but not a very strong engine. Like Ulysses I fed Romi with the 2.2 milli...

Re: AlphaWhat?

Now this is not Deep learning but it is NN if you like to play with some simple simulations.

Re: AlphaWhat?

People get so involved in discussions about ELO, TBs and TimeControls and other technicalities, they forget the basics of chess. If you just go through the Games as a chess player, its completely obvious that Stockfish was completely out-classed and simply didn't have a clue about what was going on...

This graph illustrates that A0 was at the best it was going to get... training against SF under the same conditions. Except that it did NOT train against SF.

Re: AlphaZero vs Stockfish

This is at 1 minute per move on 1 core. The difference is going to be clearly smaller with 64 cores and I see no evidence that book at that time control is additional +50 elo. Maybe book does not give much at long time control because the program can often find better moves by itself. Smaller yes, ...
