The DGT Centaur uses Stockfish 8.

Their adaptive code might just work thru enabling MultiPV and then choose the 1st , 2nd or 3rd best move, depends what the player played before.

I found this on the internet, anyone agree?

The way it works, there is a python wrapper that takes all of the top 10 moves that stockfish suggests, throws out the non humanlike moves, and then plays a move chosen by a weighting algorithm based on the evaluation of the position and the difficulty setting.

So although it is stockfish, it doesnt really play like stockfish at all.

A german chess forum where Centaur power-users are posting and they researched it .
