getting data graveyards alive

ranking lists keep computer chess alive. A treasure of millions of games is representing each year and each period of the engines. But there is a pitiable loss monthly. You see the current standings, but how you can get past rankings for comparative purposes? If you have missed archiving your person...

Re: Human projections on a probably undefined algorithmic ef

If Komodo worked like all the other programs, it would not be Komodo. Mark All clear now, these are only the stylish specialities of the house of Komodo. I guess there are certainly more of them, they need only to be discovered. I am surely right in assuming that a KOMODO has no bugs by constructio...

Re: Human projections on a probably undefined algorithmic ef

While that is true, I would expect move ordering to try KxP first... I'm not sure what would cause the delay to bubble to the top of the move list. I suppose is Like Andscacs, the first move is the hash move, not the best ordered one. In any case, Andscacs move is 63. Kxg3, of course. Only now I re...

Re: Human projections on a probably undefined algorithmic ef

1 Do the programmer even know what his engine is exactly doing here ? Sure, this is well understood. In the end you get the same score, and minimax only cares what you get in the end, not how long it takes you to get it. Sure, what clearly demonstrates that chess programming is many more than a min...

Human projections on a probably undefined algorithmic effect

Hello, the game below was played in one of my current tournaments with nine of the best freeware engines. In the game Komodo7 against Stockfish 7 you can see a very special treatment of a KPK-ending. In fact, a postgame analysis shows Komodo as the only participant which didn’t beat the pawn immedia...

Re: As though they were pondering

I can see that sometimes Houdini makes an immediate move (0 thinking time) when it is not at all an obvious move. I have seen this behaviour only from two engines before: Rybka and Zappa. I wonder why. The primary goal of the "instant move" is to win some time on a fairly obvious move (obvious for ...

Re: Question to the members of the ranking lists..

Hello Rainer ... Using the values of Rybka3/32Bit/1Cpu, you can find significant differences between CCRL, CEGT and IPON/SWCR. In practical terms, IPON and SWCR give Carlsen, Anand and Kramnik still a chance against the top chess programs.... One of the key sentences on my site is: The Elo numbers ...
