Re: Crystal 3.0

Fwiw, I strongly recommend using a power of 2 for hash size. Others may or may not "work."

Re: Asking to people who believe Leela NN is a book, what they think about SF NN now?

What was your test? Nothing like that. But those ideas bring up a good point which may or may not be clear to others... While I can only speak for myself, I do not personally have any issue whatsoever with the idea of biases in weights or internal structures of the NN provided the information avail...

Re: Asking to people who believe Leela NN is a book, what they think about SF NN now?

You did not answer the question. And nobody asked what you meant. As has already been explained, search is meaningless to the OP. A static evaluation literally cannot be an opening book without search. Policy recommendations are not static evaluations, either. In fact, they're not even evaluations, ...

Re: Asking to people who believe Leela NN is a book, what they think about SF NN now?

It's a good thing that we're not comparing the static evaluations, but the engines themselves. Lol, what exactly do you think is meant by the NN? The OP is not referring to the monte carlo tree search. And I hope, for your sake, you are referring to the static eval, because anything else is laughab...

Re: Asking to people who believe Leela NN is a book, what they think about SF NN now?

In fact, the nice thing about SPSA is that it only learns on match results. And yet, I believe you will find the static eval of SF (especially classic) is hundreds of Elo weaker than Lc0 networks. It is very hard to find a three-move line that SF doesn't have shockingly reasonable PVs for with low ...

Re: Asking to people who believe Leela NN is a book, what they think about SF NN now?

There's no way around it: SF's search is hilariously well tuned on openings. What? There is no phase information used in or available to search. This statement makes me rather suspicious of your other assertations. Furthermore, a robust (wide) 3-moves book is use for testing, which is rather the op...
