Re: If you could buy any single CPU system for chess . . .

https://preview.ibb.co/eA977K/system.jpg My system is an Intel i7-5960X with 8 cores, all overclocked to 4.6 GHz. 128 GB of RAM overclocked also. That CPU was about $1000 when I got it. If you forego the over-the-top-GPU and just get a Corsair H100i cooler for it, your entire build will be under $3...

Re: World Computer Chess Championship

Just a couple of questions for those who have followed the World Computer Chess Championships closely year after year: 1. How often does the time management code of the program factor into the definitive results? Ex: Running out the opponent's clock towards the end and forgoing longer searches in ho...

Re: Checkers Is Strongly-Solved for 8-pieces

You seem to have serious issues. I have confirmation that it was your bullshit comments to my 8-piece database paper for checkers that kept it from being considered. I will be publishing your comments for everyone to read. You can't hide behind your mask of anonymity anymore, and people will be abl...

The RILF program. Anyone hear of it?

Rouge Intelligent Learning Function (RILF) is supposedly a new combatant for AlphaZero, using the same technique to learn "from scratch" how to beat AlphaZero. The page I saw it listed previously is down now. Is the that because the training is still ongoing, or a bug, or a "do over" of some kind? A...

Re: Chess Programming Wiki

1. The US Patent for Gothic Chess was sold for $250,000 to the International team who took a 50% share in the international profits once the International Patent was awarded. Why all the citation claiming "unpaid maintenance fees?" Not even close to the reason. The International Patent overshadows t...

Re: Chess Programming Wiki

I just saw my own Wiki recently. There is stuff in there that clearly doesn't belong in there, especially nonsense about supposed arguments on other discussion boards with people whom I have never met. I want all of that garbage removed. If it involves my chess programs or programs I have written or...

If checkers is so simple, what is the best move for red here?

Re: Checkers Is Strongly-Solved for 8-pieces

Hi Ed. Be where you can download the database 8-pieces. Krzysztof Grzelak. There are not for download, but I will be releasing a new checkers engine at some point in time this year. There are 440 billion positions in the 8-piece database. At one bytes per position, this would be a 440 GB download.
