Re: CB: Feedback on the ICGA/Rybka disqualification scandal

I'm not saying that I don't think he tried to obfuscate the output or that he didn't lose the source code, those things are both very suspicious but I'm uncomfortable with making such an indirect inference. Please try to argue this way about the evil agenda of Bob when he always metions a continual...

Sure he tuned the weights in it, and sure he did lots of further work to improve Rybka in many ways...

Re: GM Carlsen rating has risen almost 100 points since 2008

Regarding ratings inflation: I am surprised that nobody has argued that the Flynn Effect is causing genuine improvement in the quality of play. This was covered in great detail last year in threads on CTF where this view was espoused by Guy Marfan. This theory is torpedoed by the Sonas anlaysis sho...

Re: GM Carlsen rating has risen almost 100 points since 2008

Kramnik and Anand were rated 2799 while Carlsen was only rated 2733 back in 2008. It is amazing how this kid took off and climbed to the top in such a short time. Very soon 17 years old GM Giri Carlsen too. http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=4399 He's talented! Kasparov still holds the ...

Kramnik and Anand were rated 2799 while Carlsen was only rated 2733 back in 2008. It is amazing how this kid took off and climbed to the top in such a short time. Carlsen increasing his Elo by 100 points in four years isn't all that impressive. At least not until you specify which 100 points. Exact...

Re: Rybka Investigation : Survey Of Evidence

i think there is a reason for this divise split and it really has nothing to do with the Rybka program per se Rybka has its own forum unlike any other engine that was ever found or accused of being a clone the forum members have developed a sense of community and an attack on the program is viewed ...

Re: Whether Rybka Is An Original Program??

Whether Rybka Is An Original Program?? Which Rybka? Rybka 1.0 beta or Rybka 4? This is the key question. For example, Larry Kaufman has conceded the possibility of Rybka 1.0 having elements of Fruit, but says he believes there are no elements in later Rybka versions. Without specifying which versio...
