Re: Is Scorpio stronger than AlphaZero?

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...

Re: Time to rethink what Vasik Rajlich has done?

so what has he done? he sent some old crafty to compete in Olivier's chesswar (or openwar) disguised as Rybka 1.6.1 (or something) - this is lame and stupid and hard to understand. this has been proven beyond any doubt as for "post-fruit" Rybkas - a wrong version was compared to Fruit (and even tha...

Re: Time to rethink what Vasik Rajlich has done?

I look away and this thread has multiplied, the usual baboon-pack behaviour for which this place, and its predecessors, were notorious. Given the subsisting degree of interest, I think I was too casual in my initial offerings (one on page 1 and a second on page 2). It is of course not only Levy who...

IT WAS NEVER ASKED [!]
How is that relevant?

Re: Time to rethink what Vasik Rajlich has done?

ICGA did NOT ask Vas for source code, Vas can't be guilty of not providing something he was never asked for. Even if we would believe such a fairy tale, he was still negligent by not offering the source code spontaneously in his defense. Of course you can argue that under the 5th amendment he is no...

Re: Time to rethink what Vasik Rajlich has done?

btw, whether or not Vas was directly asked for the source code, one would expect the reaction of an innocent man to be, "Look - here's the source code". Exactly. And how much sense does it make to not ask for source code, while the tournament rules clearly specify you can, but out of the blue decid...
