Re: Alphazero news

Just for the sake of measurement, I have started to create a considerably large book by brute force. The idea is simple: wherever there is a chance something can be "generalized", then they are also likely to exist in the book, when they are not, I'll take my chances. I don't understand what this s...

Re: Alphazero news

Laskos: I admire your patience in describing the significance of bias introduced to the test results, in fact, it came from an inherit "feature" of NNs because when they generalize things you cannot take them out, and it's also why people have invented things like BrainFish and have it probe the boo...

Re: lila-tablebase: Syzygy tablebase server

It is already the most handy API around, nice work. Not only it can be used for adjudication, it can also be used to play the games in absence of local DTZ tables when a tablebase position is reached because in most cases where you play engine games, adjudication by tablebase is not available. I use...

Re: Alphazero news

I find it interesting that the purpose of such journals are for people to have a place to share their discoveries among others, when they have no ability to reach the audience on their own. Why would anyone want to 'bar' their own papers from getting published anyway? If you don't want to get it pub...

Re: Alphazero news

Isn't it interesting that people just can't help to bring branding tags into discussion.

Now I'm like 90% sure how that went through.

Re: Alphazero news

Is it because people who wrote those 'fully decent' papers are not Google-branded? But in my view a 'decent paper' is still a decent paper even if it is published on a morning newspaper. You have no idea how is to publish in "Nature" and "Science" (Deep Mind publishing in both on this same theme). ...

Re: Alphazero news

Over the course of 2 years since the first appearance there must have been numerous cases that people asked those "technical" questions, then I got the feeling that it is either they aren't going to answer you anyway or there is simply no study about them after all. If they do care about academics t...

Re: Alphazero news

I almost thought you had a genuine question and then I finished reading the post. Have fun! :lol: By the way, are there any Plans in the Pipeline to commercialize AlphaZero ? Cannot talk about anything unannounced unfortunately! Couldn't have expected any more decent answer, I'm even glad that you ...
