Re: Are neural nets (the weights file) copyrightable?

Does that mean anybody using Microsoft Word need to give copyright to Microsoft?

Every single professional chess authors are using Chessbase GUI. You could remove those engines off from rat...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

"... We created our own program, which we called Fat Fritz ..." that's exactly what Chessbase wrote on https://en.chessbase.com/post/chess-and ... lligence-1.

Chessbase is a big company, they surely have money to invest something on AI. They just need to hire a few data scientists...

Re: 256 in NNUE?

Can we reduce the number of hidden layer neurons from say 256 to 128, and it will reduce the size of the weights to int8? Also...
