Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

Aren't you guys being a bit too strict??? TCEC is for amusement only, and two NN, trained under very different circumstances, add a nice twist to this season. The shared base code situation is obviously borderline on the regulations, but the competition will certainly gain in interest.

Deep Junior had multiple crash issues in previous seasons and was discontinued. Hence, it will not make a comeback unless someone continues its developing and (at least) fixes bugs.

Re: how will Leela fare at the WCCC?

well.. A0 made it without opening book and without tablebases

but that sort of knowledge can only make an engine stronger. An opening book is like 10 million training games and having tablebases definitely saves neuron network access time

Re: how will Leela fare at the WCCC?

It's the first real test of NN outside the Tyrel... errr... Google Corporation.

Looking forward to it. My guess is top 4.
