I would assume so. This net would need to outperform the NN that was trained with human games. Until then I dont think the net is saturated at all.

Running xBoard from command line

Hey,

I was setting up a google cloud instance the other day and did install xBoard. However, the xBoard -noGUI (and xBoard -noGUI=true) option didn't work at all. I always get the warning "cannot open display".

Did anyone get this to work or is this option bugged ?

Greetings

Robin

Re: Speed up arbitrary position search in database

he solution that immediately comes to mind is: hash code the position (Zobrist hash) and index the hash column in the DB. --Jon Would be my first choice too. I might be wrong but the reason this may not be used is that hashtables arent well suited for storing something on a harddrive/disk. Suppose ...

Re: LCZero update

Probably need to wait at least a week before those games become watchable :P Watching some of the training games hurt my eyes :lol: Yep, but training games are not meant to be good yet, they are just meant to be fast. That's why they are played with a crippled Leela. True. However, over at LeelaZer...

Anyone who is working in anything remotedly close to science knows that you will never use smth like "it took ONLY 3 hours to..." and statements like that in any scientific-related paper unless you want to get fired.

Re: LCZero update

I was thinking - once LCZero is trained to a higher level, is it possible to train the weights to make draws less interesting? e.g. score draws as 0.3 instead of 0.5 to make it play more aggressively for a win? If it positively effects the performance then one might try that. However, I would stick...
