Re: For how long will Stockfish be competitive versus the best NN ?

I think this position is a better test and I would certainly like to see your analysis of it. I originally thought this would be a “hard” test, but now I'm not so sure how hard it is. I think “most” (meaning 50% or more) ICCF 2200 players can/would solve this if it occurred in one of their games. 4...

Re: Komodo 14 released.

Testrun for CEGT 5'+3" with Ponder is running, but rather disappointing so far. 400 games only, but -26 to 13.3 is not what I expected... :( Let's wait and see https://cegt.forumieren.com/t1297-testing-komodo-14-0 The 3375 performance result against Stockfish 11 makes sense, in comparison Komodo 13...

Komodo 13.3 personalities strength ranking

Komodo 13.3 introduced 7 new personalities so I thought it'd be interesting to rank them according to their playing strength. For this experiment I set them all to skill level 24 and 12 cpus on my 12 core machine, and 2 minute blitz although time doesn't matter much as skill level 24 has them all mo...

Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

At regular ICCF time controls (10 moves in 50 days) I'm certain I can beat 1.g4. I'm playing a game on ICCF against an 1.f4 master and we're now in the middlegame and I'm feeling very good about my chances at winning. 1.g4 is worse than 1.f4 I'm sure.

Re: Houston: We have lift off ...

I don't know why you are so enthusiastic. Runs 20xxx and 30xxx are pretty pathetic, especially considering how much resources they have eaten up. Some folks there have overdone something. Just a quick check with the latest engine (rc4) and one of the latest nets: TC: 60'' + 1'' Rank Name Elo +/- Ga...

Re: 100 Elo nosedive

If you test the individual nets against a non-LCZ engine you'll probably notice no or little elo gain the past few days despite what the self elo says. Unless it starts gaining some real elo soon I think they might have to do the second LR drop. I'm no expert in NN nets but I imagine when you see a ...

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

According to this chart it seems Leela is now almost as strong as Rodent 3, so it seems to be making progress:

Re: Komodo 12 and MCTS

You give no evidence that a neural network is needed for Monte Carlo Tree Search I know. Because I never said something like this. All I say is, that the interesting, risky positional of LCZero comes from its neural network, not from the MCTS, which LCZero uses only, because the neural-net calculat...
