Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

Albert, what is your source of games to train the Leela network with? Just interested, since Leela is now trained against >20M games and this has taken months of around 200 contributors. I would imagine one of the primary reasons he is using "Human" games (I thought I read somewhere he is using cor...

Re: Scorpio 2.8.6 MCTS neural network evaluation

you should also have full TF installed/compiled for your target OS and in path for Scorpio to find it … seems to be quite complicated for me (for Windows 10 x64) Yes building TF for C/C++ is quite a pain on Windows.
