question to Prof Hyatt is Mr kaufman's method a reliable one

to see if rybka can come up with better positions than a gm http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?dln=91016;pid=98159 .. I think that there is a fairly good way to test the hypothesis that doesn't require a new interface or engine. First, we make a version of Rybka with only tiny ev...

Re: My two cents

one of the strengths of zappa was its scaling. People were saying that a 16 or 32 core zappa would be the same or stronger than a 16 or 32 rybka 2.3. Do you agree ? If so what would you say about rybka 3. how many cores would be needed to = rybka 3. The rybka team say that the program that they resp...

Re: question to prof Hyatt re kaufman and best positional m

Mr kaufman believes that Roman Dzindzichashvili would agree with him. Do you disagree with that ? http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?dln=91001;pid=98152 (1)Dr Hyatt implies gm's agree with him. any comment on that. (2)also you say , "this should knock off somewhere around 100-200...

Re: question to prof Hyatt re kaufman and best positional m

Mr kaufman's estimates for the eval elo of rybka would be about 2300 but going to 2950 against a gm who can avoid tactical mistakes. what would be your rough alternative figures ? http://rybkaforum.net/cgi-bin/rybkaforum/topic_show.pl?pid=98134;msg=ReplyPost Well, I agree with all but your second se...

Re: question to prof Hyatt re kaufman and best positional m

I think Mr Kaufman said that allowing one move takebacks is 'only' worth 150 elo and is confident rybka would win a gm under such conditio...
