Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

Ok we have now collected enough inspiration IMO, or what do you think ? I want to thank you the pioneers in this field. Each of them made a step into the right direction. Mikhail Botwinnik, Mike Johnson, David Broughton, Thomas Nitsche+Elmar Henne, Julio Kaplan, Marty Hirsch, Mark Uniacke, Chris Whi...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

Humans do forget unimportant things, machines do forget all. When I play an important chess game it is stored in my brain, next time I come into similar position I do maybe play different. This is Btw the same mechanism that allows humans do drive cars. We learn how to drive cars. The learner has to...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

In Glasgow richard lang had no contract with H+G. He was working on his own, at this time producing PSION chess. Mephisto III was overtaken by others later. This is true. But richard Lang dominated for years. So how do you want to judge this ? Richard Lang won championships from 1984 until 1993. 7 t...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

I think it comes from the unfortunate definition of node for NN programs. But it does make them look clever. I guess it is kind of like Rybka nodes, which had *cough* a little fudge factor. Maybe I should only count nodes with White to move as printed nodes and label Black's moves just as "reply no...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

LC0 running on the ARM cpu of my cheap tablet doing Arround 1-5 NPS plays very good chess. Match it against SF on the same tablet and see what happens. Besides, you're misinterpreting what a node even means for LC0. From the Github page: NPS: Nodes per second, including NNCache hits and terminal no...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

The 6502 Ed Schröder used is faster. And it ran on 5 MHz. Thre's no way that a 6502 at 5 MHz is anywhere as fast as a 68k at 12 MHz. Not only because of the clock frequency, but the 6502 is an 8 bit processor while the 68k is 32 bit internally (with 16 bit data bus). ______________ I am relating th...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

Mephisto III S Glasgow won the world computer chess champion title. The whole program that computes Maybe 4-6 NPS on the 68000 cpu with wait States runs on a 8 Bit CPU 1802 with 1-3 NPS. It can play serious tournament chess with only 120-240 N per move. Not NPS but Nodes per move. This was programme...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

LC0 is the evidence for me that it is possible to build strategy over tactics and still play decent human chess. Artificial neural networks have as little to do with human intelligence as using a compressor to press manure through a hole in the wall has to do with human digestion. So far NN play a ...
