In our time, an average CPU runs Stockfish at 5 Mn/s.
So what's the point to stop Stockfish after 1000 nodes ?
The fact that stockfish needs 5 million NPS to make a move is disastrous enough,

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

There is no sense in making these programs 40 Elo better. They will not play better because they have no clue what they are doing. They are blind. They mainly win because the opponent is at the time 40 Elo blinder. you only do competition. But not chess. You could, if you like these wins and Elo in...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

"As long as the programs do not plan to win but make moves , that win material or mate, they do not understand chess." What does this even mean? So if an engine goes for the mate, it doesn't understand chess because it didn't plan to win? :roll: I hope Mclane realizes that a mate is a win. Todays c...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

As long as the programs do not plan to win but make moves , that win material or mate, they do not understand chess. I'm going to go ahead and claim that your Mephisto III plays to win material or mate, and it doesn't make plans either, so it's a bad example of what you mean. Of course mephisto III...

This is really not AI but instead artificial stupidity. The progress you've made in about 8 months in this thread disproves the existence of HI.

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

The question is do we really need all these hardware and software explosion ? Mainly this is needed to beat the programs that are similar. To increase ELO in series of test games. But is this chess ?! Wouldn’t it make more sense to use the gigantic resources to bring chess on another level where the...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

The failure of todays chess programs is that they heavily rely on search tree instead of knowledge or intuition. r1r5/1b1n3k/1n1q1ppp/3Pp3/ppP1P2P/5QR1/1BBN1PP1/2R3K1 w - - 0 1 Houdini 6.03: 27.Ld1 a3 28.La1 h5 29.Sf1 Sxc4 30.Txg6 Kxg6 31.Dxh5+ Kg7 32.Sg3 (…) = (0.00) depth: 28/54 00:00:47 743MN, tb...

Re: I was right!

The ELO increased. But the programs are not intelligent. They are as dumb as a dinosaur.
