Re: A Crossroad in Computer Chess; Or Desperate Flailing for Relevance

Now enough of the Eval Function. Just imagine if NN goes on and replaces the handcrafted Search Function of Chess engines. That's impossible one might claim, handcrafted Search Techniques by humans will always be stronger. That is what A0's MCTS basically did. It is still astounding to me a search ...

Re: We have a chess queen, but do you know the queen of chess?

About the mate announcements I doubt if all of them are correct. I found no proof for the mate in 11 claim and I am also practically sure it was impossible without a computer to write a tree that proves the mate. If somebody has not mate claim but proof that there is a forced mate with the relevant...

SF burns analysis of GM Kotov on his book How To Think Like A Grandmaster

This position was shown in page 20 of Think Like a Grandmaster by GM Kotov. Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of this book and of Kotov too. In fact I even read/ analysed this book twice during my teenage days. The communication during those years when Kotov wrote the book was by snail mail (in pos...
