Re: Komodo 13.3 64-bit 4CPU Gauntlet for CCRL 40/15

It's nice to see that Komodo 13.3 is now about 20 elo above Houdini 6 on both your 4 cpu and 1 cpu lists, so with Houdini no longer under development we can finally call that horse race! Except for chess960 :wink: Well, I think that has more to do with the 40/2' time limit for the frc list than it ...

Re: CEGT - rating lists March 29th 2020

"Best Single Versions" for 40/20 has 3 versions of Lc0 and 2 versions of Komodo MCTS: http://www.cegt.net/40_40%20Rating%20List/40_40%20SingleVersion/rangliste.html This brings up the question of why NNs that require both a GPU and a CPU are even included in a Single Version list, as they require t...

Re: How is Komodo NN progressing ?

The reason is that we are trying to do something original, not simply create another net that would play pretty much like any other NN. We're trying to create a hybrid of Komodo and NN that is better than either one would be. But it's quite difficult with no one we can use as a model, and our NN guy...

Re: The Stockfish of shogi

lkaufman? As in, Larry Kaufman? I'm honoured, I'm sure. :) what is the basis for your statement that it "is no AlphaZero"? It's different, sure, but apparently just as strong, without using a GPU It's entirely possible that my understanding of its strength is outdated. I was under the impression th...

Re: The Stockfish of shogi

As you can see, I get lost very quickly, so there's currently no chance of me working out what the equivalent would be for FIDE chess. I'd be very interested to see this tried out though, as NNUE-shogi engines are now obscenely powerful - orqha1018+dolphin1 is no AlphaZero but it's still a monster....

Re: Komodo vs GM Smerdon knight odds match

there is nothing in either Komodo or Stockfish that would discourage giving up a pawn to avoid bad things happening to the king I wonder how would one even add such a thing to the engine. If the engine sees that there's a line of moves that leaves the king in a compromised position leading to a los...

Re: Komodo vs GM Smerdon knight odds match

I m happy Larry you re trying this match. Yes this time Komodo might finally be underdog. But maybe it won't last forever... I m like you, hoping one day the best engine could give a knight handicap against the strongest in the world. Well, at tournament time control against top humans, this might ...
