I don't agree. One uses supervised learning, another reinforcement learning. They will play completely different chess. Also, as the 2 groups (main and test) seem to stall at significantly below A0 level (even if put on the same hardware), supervised learning is worth give a try. I hope this Deus X wins the TCEC, and all these discussions will be put to rest.jkiliani wrote: ↑Tue Jul 31, 2018 8:59 pmI agree, it seems rather difficult to me to justify allowing Deus X while not letting developers of other strong engines enter clones with changed parameters under a new name. Let's see how TCEC spins this once the complaints to this move start coming in...
For Season 13, it seems the decision is made, but for the season after this they'll have to come up with a new set of rules and follow it consistently.
