Re: Stockfish: Our lawsuit against ChessBase

Look, I still don't see how CB losing the case could cause them any trouble, they can bundle with Fire instead right? :D That would fit them pretty well reputation-wise, under which the corporate umbrella sells for ASilver, Houdart and Norman alike. I purpose FF3 should use a function name "moven't...

Re: Stockfish: Our lawsuit against ChessBase

NOT-SF derivatives, like Rubichess, Minic, Igel, Fire 8 NNUE , Zahak, Nemorino, Seer, Marvin, Greko, Berserk, Gogobello You might want to do some more reading. You've got an imposter in that list. Fire 8 is open source...there is no SF in it. However there are several threads in engine origins deta...

Re: Stockfish: Our lawsuit against ChessBase

You do understand that those pages were only updated AFTER getting legal notice from Stockfish, right? The explicit mentioning of Stockfish's GPLv3 is an attempt to remedy the violation. You know full and well the original page made no direct associations between Stockfish and FF2. How can he know ...

Re: Stockfish 14 release round the corner

"The fact that we could use and combine these datasets freely was essential for the progress made and demonstrates the power of open source and open data ." It's clear that both the LC0 team and the SF team are in complete agreement on this... They believe that the data produced by engines, in whate...

Re: Time to rethink what Vasik Rajlich has done?

Vasik Rajlich implemented a lot of his own code in his evaluation and used a unique search in Rybka, something that many other chess engine developers at the time of his banning in 2011, like Norman Schmidt and Robert Houdart, never did. Vasik Rajlich was one of the first engine authors who tuned t...

Re: will Tcec allow Stockfish with a Leela net to play?

Why are you linking an article that bases its conclusions on 240/250 game samples? In his defense, thats 10x the sample size of the average talkchess thread :lol: well you're right..good point it's unfortunate, the paper is so well done otherwise, and extremely thorough tested so many variables tab...

Re: will Tcec allow Stockfish with a Leela net to play?

All this gloating about how Ethereal NNUE trainer is "original" or whatever while Fire's isn't etc for what exactly ? Reinventing the wheel doesn't make one original or smarter. If one enjoys doing that, that is fine, but bashing others because they don't do it your way is bullshit. People disagree...

Re: will Tcec allow Stockfish with a Leela net to play?

No need...the CalPoly study states the facts clearly enough for me. BTW- if you read the study, it comes to the conclusion that SSD or HDD doesn't make a difference, "Engine strength does not appear to have any relationship with tablebase access speed and relative performance gains/losses." so that...

Re: will Tcec allow Stockfish with a Leela net to play?

Have you ever actually tried a match between Stockfish with EGTB vs. without EGTB? With 6 man EGTB, one can expect less than 10 elo. For comparison, let's try Stockfish with an evaluation function vs. without an evaluation function... oh wait, that would be stupid. They're not remotely comparable a...
