Music Learned by A.I. from specific band

Sorry this is not chess related. But I saw this news, where an A.I. was used to learn the music of specific bands. Then it creates its own version, with almost the same rythm of the original band. Already published was metallicAI, nirvanAI, red hat chilli peppers, led zeppelin. Many youtube vids wer...

Re: Anti-Engine Puzzle

FairyGen says both BNN-K and NNB-K are general draws, although in the case of a royal Knight thereare some rather long mates. I cannot imagine it makes much difference whether the Knight is royal or not. However, that is on an otherwise empty board. And that is not what we have here. It is conceiva...

Re: ProDeo 3.1 - The PESTO version

Already downloaded this engine a few days back. Thanks a lot for this new engine Ed! Interesting to note that there are still some new ideas being tried and tested. I'm think in the next MinimalChess version I will add suport for PSTs (because it's just such a huge strength boost) and I was thinking...

Test Position - wrong eval score

Very few engines can handle fortress assesment correctly, as already pointed out by other members here. below position was shown by an IM who posted this in youtube 8/7K/1R6/k2p3b/Ppp5/1p1P4/1PP5/8 w - - 0 1 Most engines got the correct line: Rb5+ Kxa4 Rxb4+ Kxb4 c3+ Kc5 d4+ Kd6 Kh6 Ke6 Kg5 but give...

Re: Stupid AI, stupid policy or stupid world?

In one football match at Europe, I remember that blooper when an A.I. camera focused on bald head of a referee instead of the ball.

Re: Fat Fritz 2

You don't have a copy of the net either? I don’t do Windows and most of the chessbase software is Windows based. (I may have an ancient copy of chessbase for Windows NT somewhere.) I’ve restricted my comments to the GPL as I can’t speak to how FF2 plays or whether it would be worth X $ to someone. ...
