Re: Ferret 1.00 v258 - program from 1995

I remember reading some old Winboard forum posts about a chess engiine that wasn't released to the public, I forget the engine's name, and some beta testers had let it out into the wild. If I remember correctly the engine's programmer was young, maybe even just a teenager, and the release of the en...

Re: Where are the funs of Leela?

I guess the same applies to the A/B engines compared to one nn engine. All A/B engines are very similar to each other, just Lc0 is completely different. So it is likely that the good A/B engines perform better against weak A/B engines than Lc0. But there are really not enough games to draw any seri...

Re: Where are the funs of Leela?

An 3000 ELO Engine will performe better against a older version of itself with 2990 ELO than against a different engine with 2990 ELO. Thus it is not a surprise that in this setup some Stockfish engines took the lead. Not sure if this explanation quite works when four out of the six Stockfish engin...

Re: Where are the funs of Leela?

As I see basically Leela is weaker against the relative weaker engines than the Stockfish family are. Another Leela's issue is as the opening position is more further from start position as Leela is more and more weaker. It is a consequence of self-play training what begins from start position. You...

Re: Where are the funs of Leela?

I should like to read some interpretation about the results of Leela in TCEC 15. Champion Bonus. Where is the "New Era"? An 3000 ELO Engine will performe better against a older version of itself with 2990 ELO than against a different engine with 2990 ELO. Thus it is not a surprise that in this setu...

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?

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...
