Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

Komodo 11.2 is only 26 Elo points behind version 14, at CCRL 40/15. It was released on July 17, 2017. SF had been the clear number one for over a year, by the time Lc0 matured, and now it is again; this last T60 run has been rather disappointing, not to mention incredibly long. The main reason why ...

Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

There is new technology just around the corner that is going to breathe new life into the LC0 category of programs. AMD is creating a topology where the GPUs and CPUs can have syncrhonized access to the same memory sources. That removes the one huge problem that exists today for LC0. AMD cards need...

Re: Future of computer chess: 2 top engines?

It has really been the case since mid to late 2018 when Komodo and Houdini (which was later discovered to be a Stockfish clone) stalled on progress and no other engine except for Ethereal was able to catch up to Komodo and Houdini before NNUE (and now Ethereal has stopped development which is a sha...

Re: Interrupting Cutechess-Cli with CTRL+C yields to unpredictable results.

Re: ShashChess

Every position can be of type Tal, Capablanca, Petrosian or mixed type: Tal-Capablanca or Capablanca-Petrosian: As rule of thumb, if you set the contempt to 0 and reset any dynamic contempt, if on a position the engine like stockfish shows a score <-0.25 the position is of Petrosian type =-0.25 the...
