Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

Blueprint concept, internal cache depends on total system ram. 32 GB system can afford to give syzygy cache more portion. Actually what happens as it is though, is that system will give Syzygy as much as it can until something else is claiming that cache memory. To prove this you can do an "echo *....

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

In the cases where you don't think the OS can do a better job managing caches, you claim a piece of memory and maintain it on your own by implementing something like TB cache. Then to the OS's view it is just a piece of memory and it will still do file caching when it thinks it is necessary. You wil...

Re: LCZero update

Seems you didn't quite understand what I wrote. I said, you can run games but not train the network without TensorFlow. I thought you'd understand such basic stuff as that running training games is not the same as training the network. I can see why we shouldn't say a complete sentence to explain c...

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

The 6v1 ones are indeed meaningless in sense of improving engine strength, but they are important in the way that they require the generator to handle larger index space and for various verifications. I also built 6v1 up to 2 pawns just to test the pawn code. Only if these files are correct can I th...

Re: LCZero update

Is a GeForce 10, 1060 any good for training? I have one of those. I also have an older Quadro 5000 but it's not as powerful. It doesn't have to be powerful, currently it just runs on the previously created network and produce game results, upload them and then they run the training based on everyon...

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

Bojun Guo: have you checked if probing 7-man inflict larger speed penalty than usual. Probing 6-men cause slight engine speed reduction, not sure how much force 7-man add on speed. Maybe too early to say. There is slow down when it needs to probe TB and there is speed up when it doesn't have to sea...

Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

Which hardware configuration did you use? Also, in case one needs a lot of RAM already for the pawnless ones, do you think you could upload some of them when they're finished? (maybe via some torrent or so) I used a 4-way Xeon with some physical RAM more than 1TB to build them. Actually the pawnful...

Re: So Alpha Zero was a hoax?

Your claim that chess is somehow different from Go, likewise, would have been much more convincing had it been made before the AlphaZero results were published. Oh, really? There is it when I said about the differences and possible chess usage, now I throw this back to you, where were you when ther...

Re: So Alpha Zero was a hoax?

that a reinforcement learning-based approach is capable of competing with the traditional alpha-beta approach So where is the search part? Is it not included in the preprint or something?
