A worked example of backpropagation using Javascript

If like me you are new to all this net stuff I recommend Alexander Schiendorfer's blog post called "A worked example of backpropagation". Everything fell into place for me after reading that. https://alexander-schiendorfer.github.io/2020/02/24/a-worked-example-of-backprop.html While working through ...

Re: Hand coded Winboard/UCI Javascript Engine List

I've added a lozza2.0.zip formal release with instructions about installing Nodejs and tweaking the batch file included in the release. That batch file is then the engine for a chess UI.

If there is still room for improvement, let me know.

Re: Javascript question

I follow the V8 engine twitter account and they are constantly improving it. Very old nodes from ~2015 had some bugs: if I used const instead of var Lozza got slower, ditto if I used switch. I always try and keep up to date with the latest node assuming it's better than previous ones. Performance is...

Re: Hand coded Winboard/UCI Javascript Engine List

No not exactly...at the Lozza Github site..notice the wording..."Releases No releases published" There is no section with the releases in zip files like most of the others(exes)...so you are literally "fishing around looking for the correct file and they all say "Lozza.js"...only when they load in ...

Re: Hand coded Winboard/UCI Javascript Engine List

These JS engines are a bit strange....On Lozza when I went to rt click and save the engine the size was 2.5 or 2.8 MB (engine won't work) when I downloaded the entire file folder and checked the sizes Lozza was around 200 to 250k.......engine would work...both files said Lozza.js.the real one and t...

Re: Hand coded Winboard/UCI Javascript Engine List

Thanks Martin/Guenther,

NB: I did write a UCI shell for GarboChessJS some years ago but when somebody tested it the results were not great and I let it drop. Still have the code though.

Edit: My assumption has always been that I missed up the interface because GarbochessJS was quite strong.
