Re: King Indian like and usefulness of engines

[quote="PK"] I have a gut feeling that serious data mining coupled with increasing the number of piece/square tables (maybe using different sets for different central pawns structures and different king positions) might result in something as spectacular as AlphaGo neural networks.

Re: King Indian like and usefulness of engines

[quote="PK"] Sometimes I think that data structures commonly used in chess programs are just a bit too simplistic to allow for applying (or perhaps learning) a new knowledge.

Re: New asmFish released

[quote="shrapnel"] Can't put my finger on it, but something is definitely wrong about ASMfish. Its like Music. A guy may not know anything about Music but be still able to catch a false Note.

Re: New asmFish released

[quote="syzygy"] In the windows version large pages is off by default, so any speed increase of brainfish (when not enabling large pages) is due to the better/different compile. [/quote] I agree. The speed of Brainfish is corresponding to Stockfish8 from ultimaq web page and my binary made with ming...
