Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

Just got back from the pub so sorry for the late blitz final results :) 1. Jonny 2. Shredder 3. Komodo 4. Hiarcs Wow, so he's using too many cores now! Congratulations to Jonny! And this where he plays every game some solid openingsline - Jonny really had to fight for every point it makes. No openi...

Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

En passant bug in Komodo? 1.d4 d5 2.e4 fxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Nc6 5.d5 Ne5 6.Qd4 Nf7 7.h4 e5?! To me looks like dubious move. You just take on e6 en passant and whites (presumably bad position according to theory from 1990s) looks suddenly ok for white. After 7..c6 - black is obviously much better. I...

Re: WCCC June 27th in Leiden

I see professor Bob getting quoted as author from GGG, is it supercrafty? Yeah as for the games - here a few cents from a titled player with some experience in computerchess. Very dull openings in most games. No nothing spectacular. 1.c4,c5 2.Nf3 then of course the best move is Nc6 As we already kno...

Re: Lee Sedol vs. AlphaGo [link to live feed]

The situation is easy as i see it: In GO the huge branching factor and number of moves for the average game is so huge, that no computer or human can base or improve his play, improving that. I.e improving search in GO does not do anything(compared to evaluation function). So evaluation is THE MOST...

Re: Lee Sedol vs. AlphaGo [link to live feed]

It is amazing how full of yourself you are. Who are you to denigrate people like Lee Sedol, Kasparov, other programmers, everybody else? Stupid conspiracies in every single post of yours, go see a doctor, finally. please. While I disagree with most of the points, let's talk DB rematch for a while: ...

Re: Lee Sedol vs. AlphaGo [link to live feed]

as for search please note i already dropped 10 years ago a proposal for that publicly. You can do some work to make a function that assigns a reduction to each move. or rather than reduction i'd call it number of units that a move costs. let's fictive use fractions. So the best few moves have fracti...

Re: Lee Sedol vs. AlphaGo [link to live feed]

oh comeon. Assuming you have a reasonable evaluation search is everything in Go of course. From the 361 moves you can HARD FORWARD PRUNE kind of 300 moves already. There is just a tiny little detail missing from this grand plan of yours I think... how exactly do you decide which 300 moves to HARD F...

Re: Lee Sedol vs. AlphaGo [link to live feed]

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Handwritten evaluation functions in chess are good enough that switching to a neural network (slightly better outputs but much slower) is a net negative. I really hope someone skilled in ML steps in and take it as far as it can go and see what happens. Even if the ...
