Leela about to go +3, SF fans already using excuses like "hardware disadvantage" or "no book"... gimme a break.
The same guys who made fun about the argument, Lc0 would be better without book?

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

It looks like LZero has an Elo of about 3400. Stockfish has an Elo of about 3400 without a book. If you give Stockfish a very strong book it has an Elo of about 3530. Stephen Pohl has shown that. LZERO needs to gain 130 Elo points to draw even. If it gains more than that and keeps going it will be ...

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

Next CCC tournament is 1+2. My bet is Leela will beat SF in Bullet. In their hardware SF is approx +20 elo stronger in 30+5 TC, but in 1+2 Bullet Leela will be approx +20 elo stronger. (Expecting end of an era in bullet at least) I do not consider it end of an era when the programs do not use equal...

I don't understand the version numbering.. shouldn't this be 2019 after we had several 2018.X versions?
Maybe you understand it when you are looking at the date of the announcement :D

Thanks Vladimir, GreKo is still one of my favorites!

first: will leela run on 1 mhz machine ?
second: does it fit into 32 KB and can it run with only 8 KB RAM ?
You asked for intelligent software. You can't expect anyone to develop new and more intelligent software for your 1MHz machine :wink:

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

Try Leela with 1 visit, then you play only against its neural net. It will easily beat all the dedicated units of the past.

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

Way more then what most people have. Agreed but if LCZ is going to be crowned the best chess engine than it has to beat SF on 44 cores in my opinion. Just a question of time. And soon there will be a lot of new engines using the neural nets without Leelas Zero approach. Maybe Stockfish will come ba...

Re: Chess for Android and Electronic ChessBoards

You believe it will qualify chess ? We will see. I made the experience that I get dozens of responses when posting a result with a list of elos, while I get no responses when posting a chess game . It seems people discuss more about the lists and elos and hardware increases instead of discussing th...

Re: Chess for Android and Electronic ChessBoards

I hoped the neural nets would make a new approach but it perverted again into the faster faster higher higher approach. So the same bullshit like Stockfish. People are only interested in faster hardware and not in better chess. Crazy Stone, the Go program of Rémi Coulom, simulates go players of all...
