Re: Quite shocked, with huge late

If I remember right he passed away while Komodo was in the finals of a TCEC tournament, I think against Stockfish. I remember he was following it in the hospital until his last few days.

" That has been my experience with the Intel Xeon E5-2686-V3, 2 X 18 = 36 physical cores. Using the system with one process (ches...

Re: World #1 Go Player Ke Jie accepts Google Alpha Go Match.

Only by 0.5 point if I understood correctly. On the other hand AlphaGo is programmed to go for the surest win and not the win that delivers the most points (which may involve taking higher risks). So the fact that AlphaGo "only" won by 0.5 points may be misleading. 0.5 without komi of 7.5? That was...
