Re: GRL - test runs

Ed, do you plan on also maintaining a list with all engine versions on it? It is fairly common in other rating lists to have two separate lists, one for all engines versions and another for the strongest engine version. I see both a "Best Version": https://rebel13.nl/grl-best-40-2.html and a "Full ...

Re: Did all top commercial engines around 2005 violate Fruit 2.1's GPL license?

Madeleine, I have no wish to argue with you. I presented the facts as I remember them, to help you have a global vision when reading the CCC archives. I did not realize that you are a troll. Sorry, I was in a really terrible mood yesterday and earlier today after reading the Vas interview and the L...

Re: Is Scorpio stronger than AlphaZero?

None of the engine's you mentioned come close to A0, because that is a real breakthrough. You can re-implement its algorithm and improve up on it and make it stronger than A0 like Stockfish/Leela is right now, but it never compares to A0 IMO. To venture where no has gone before is what matters the ...

Re: Did all top commercial engines around 2005 violate Fruit 2.1's GPL license?

Madeleine, no engine was suspected to have violated Fruit GPL licence. The situation was quite different from today. Whether no engine was suspected to have violated Fruit GPL license in the past is irrelevant to whether the engines mentioned above did violate Fruit GPL license. It's like claiming ...

Is Scorpio stronger than AlphaZero?

It is now widespread knowledge that engines such as Stockfish, Leela, and Dragon are hundreds of elo stronger than the AlphaZero which destroyed Stockfish 9 in 2017. But what about Daniel Shawul's Scorpio, the sixth best engine currently at TCEC? Unfortunately, rhe most recent versions of Scorpio do...

Re: Did all top commercial engines around 2005 violate Fruit 2.1's GPL license?

However, why wasn't any of the other top commercial engines at the time, such as the ones listed in the interview, Fritz, Hiarcs, Zappa, Spike, List, investigated as well for their possible violation of Fruit's GPL? List was. From here: https://www.chessprogramming.org/List_(Program) List participa...
