Re: Bluefish vs Leela in TCEC , who will win? BF =170 Threads, Lc0 =2x GPU

An engine is an analysis tool that is supposed to help us analyze a chess position so that we can train and learn from it. A chess engine is a chess playing program that someone created for some reason. Lc0 is created to see how reinforced learning is doing in chess. Lc0 is for sure NOT created to ...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Leela learns patterns in self play games. In new positions she tries to find this patterns. That's why she is running faster with gpu which are optimized for calculating images. Leela don't save one single position in it's NN. She found something in the position which made her believe is winning. W...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

You have ZERO idea about how Neural Net engines work. Thanks. But if during self play LC0 never move in this position Bg6, from what she knows Bg6 is a good move? Leela learns patterns in self play games. In new positions she tries to find this patterns. That's why she is running faster with gpu wh...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

After game 10, Stockfish was two games ahead. Which obviously means the era of Stockfish continues and LZ is hopelessly weak. After game 50 something, LZ is two games ahead, so it's the end of the Stockfish era. Bla bla. With a non-draw-result to games played ratio of about 1 in 5 or whatever it is...

Leela about to go +3, SF fans already using excuses like "hardware disadvantage" or "no book"... gimme a break.
The same guys who made fun about the argument, Lc0 would be better without book?

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

It looks like LZero has an Elo of about 3400. Stockfish has an Elo of about 3400 without a book. If you give Stockfish a very strong book it has an Elo of about 3530. Stephen Pohl has shown that. LZERO needs to gain 130 Elo points to draw even. If it gains more than that and keeps going it will be ...

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

Next CCC tournament is 1+2. My bet is Leela will beat SF in Bullet. In their hardware SF is approx +20 elo stronger in 30+5 TC, but in 1+2 Bullet Leela will be approx +20 elo stronger. (Expecting end of an era in bullet at least) I do not consider it end of an era when the programs do not use equal...

I don't understand the version numbering.. shouldn't this be 2019 after we had several 2018.X versions?
Maybe you understand it when you are looking at the date of the announcement :D

Thanks Vladimir, GreKo is still one of my favorites!
