Re: Moderator Elections

Is it possible to nominate an AI bot as a member of a moderation team.
Or how do you know if some persons here are no AI bots or humans using AI bots.

Re: Not reproducible

Ok. I think I found it. Transposition table was not cleared so it contained old values of positions where special endgame evaluation is not used.
My engine only swiches to other evaluation function at start of the search. Not when bareking situation occurs.

I could for instance imagine that a separate section of training and implementing neural networks would be useful. Maybe split up the side in a autistic division and a neurotypical division. There is ev...

Re: Moderator Elections (Comments)

One can also put people with matching personalities in a team.
Devil invented enneagram says: type 5 match with 7, 1 with 9, 4 with 6 etcetera.
