Re: Ivanhoe plays singlecore in TCEC 13 !!

In the past when Martin was still in charge of TCEC each engine was thoroughly checked before it was entered in the tournament. Now it seems more like playing Pacman. TCEC will lose a lot of credibility with all these nonsense. TCEC tournament director is totally incompetent. Was already the case w...

Re: texel tuning

Am looking at texel tuning. From the wiki: "K is a scaling constant. Compute the K that minimizes E." How to do so? Its trivial using the Newton Raphson method. What you want to compute is K such that E'(K)=0. Don't they teach this at high school anymore ? Also the wiki says to run a QS. But if I u...

Re: MS acquires github??

I have just seen this today. https://blog.github.com/2018-06-04-github-microsoft/ https://blogs.microsoft.com/blog/2018/06/04/microsoft-github-empowering-developers/ Not sure if this makes people happy... As long as it works, and is free to use, I don't care. Of course, Github is losing money, and ...

Re: Good books for self testing?

Here is a large suite, all handpicked, and all real openings, with none of that random 3-move nonsense. Every opening under the sun. It's obvious your not an engineer. The "random 3-move nonsense" is exactly what chess engine programmers need for self testing based development. If you double the el...

Re: LCZero Accomplishments and Goals Thus Far

I don't care how Leela performs on a toaster, on my hw it seems to perform at ~2900 CCRL (ID 227) even at a fast 40 moves in 1 minute, no way it's 2100 :D Fully utilizing available hardware is hardly "unfair". She will smoke 3k engines in next TCEC. Don't underestimate the toaster. With the interne...

CheckersGuy wrote:The new net + the new client was about 300 selfplay elo stronger than id 44. Since some ppl were still using the v3 and not the v4 client the elo graph is completly messed up and the elo difference of 55 vs 44. is much lower in the graph.
What does the client version have to do with ELO ?

Re: LCZero Elo

For the moment, it's only ~1500 elo CCRL, and progress is starting to stall. On the other hand, 12 months is a long time, and immense amount of resources are thrown at it. So perhaps 2000 is possible. But 3400, definitely not... Lc0 is beating TSCP now so I would say it's clearly above 1500 No it d...
