Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (16th February 2019)

HGM - In this thread I am trying to convince the CCRL folks (and perhaps the CEGT people as well) to review their restrictions on learning, especially when I read: positional learning not allowed. It's not about you or me . And yet as often for reasons that escape me you sooner or later make it tha...

Re: Leelafish with distilled network

I do not understand what you mean? He means, it is no wonder that LC0 + Corfish are better than Rybka 4.1, because Corfish alone would be already much better than Rybka 4.1 on your hardware condition. Practically the question is how much LC0 weakens it vs. Rybka 4.1 ;-) IMHO this hybrid approach on...

Re: 11258-32x4-se distilled network released

With the 112*9se network nps increases may be by a factor of 5-6. But this is not the only positive aspect. Due to passive cooling it always went too hot before even with an open case, while it now runs around 10-15 degrees lower in non bullet games. Currently testing against Laser 1.7. Results so ...

Re: Lc0 ... the GOOD and the BAD

One more "Bad" thing with Lc0 play was how it totally mis-evaluates an extra queen. I had seen this in several games in my tourneys, but yesterday this also happened in TCEC. Lc0 happily went into an endgame where SF had an extra Queen for a rook and thought things were just fine. Here is the posit...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (16th February 2019)

... I don't know if there are any Chess engines that store their eval parameters in a separate parameter file (e.g. to facilitate tuning without having to recompile), but I know for sure that most Shogi engines do this. (E.g. for Bonanza you would have to download a >200MB file with eval parameters...
