Re: Announcing lczero

I'm trying it. It's self-playing something but I can't understand the output. It's something like 1 <B D4> 2 <W Q4> 3 <B R17> 4 <W Q16>......... and so on. Well, I'll let it run to understand it while eating. Interesting. But is it chess? :lol: LOL White won first game in 195 plies. No idea about t...

Re: Permanent Hash/Position Learning

Yeah! This would also work. You could also implement opponent modeling on the GUI side, that is, openings that lose to Komodo but win against Houdini are played accordingly, which should help with the elo boost. And now the question is, Does Mike feel healthy and strong enough to do it? I don't wis...

Re: Permanent Hash/Position Learning

There's a lack of interest in making SF 200 Elo stronger. Try to digest that for a while. It really 'speaks volumes' about the current state of computer chess. I suspect many SF developers feel a bit... "stalemated" after the AlphaZ event. But think at it: a GUI could perform that task in the same ...

After some months of practice with Daniel Jose PH system with correspondence games, I feel the need to thank him for the performance. I never expected it.

+23 =65 -0

Thanks Daniel! :D

Re: Permanent Hash/Position Learning

Rodolfo, for elo points I think RomiChess's method is the best, as it eventually can learn how to beat anyone from a given position, doing it from starting position would just take a while... The problem is Romi reaching won positions and losing them, then avoiding them because it lost... For this ...

I agree, Daniel, it's nice, but... how a mere mortal like me can help? And I'd eventually have my own learning engine, or my CPU time would help to build the learning stuff on remote?

Thanks to anybody who could clear my few and confused ideas... :D

Re: Permanent Hash/Position Learning

Maybe that´s not enough to increase an engine´s strengh dramatically (say, by 100 ELO points or more). It is possible to gain some points using a huge op. book and some points using tablebases... but what about storing (and loading this hash file when the engine starts) *middlegame positions* ? Sup...
