Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

Please note Rein that such sportplayers are so rich they have a manager and therefore that is a company. For example if you buy a few items as a private person in EU then you have a warranty. If on other hand you buy the same items as a company - you don't have that warranty. Deal is deal and that'...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

What's this Go thing? ... Hi Vincent, Welcome back! Fabien. In the meantime it's clear to me what alphago is. Thanks to a posting of some go players who figured it out... It's just new incarnation of what ran on the supercomputer in Amsterdam it seems in 2007 and 2008 and which won in 2010 the ICGA...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

2200 at most yeah. Realize also they had a very bad book. Just some pgn games. No nothing manual. could you give some samples of weak 2200 play by deep blue ? There is an excellent analysis of all the weak moves in match2 in the june edition 1997 from ICGA by GM Yasser Seirawan. just lay those 6 ga...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

Bob, Deep Blue wasn't lucky to beat Kasparov - Kasparov loved the money too much - and contractual he had to lose anyway (and i have that from an insider who was helping out Kasparov at that time). So Kasparov was stupid enough to have a clause in his contract determining the outcome (do you really...

Re: Lomonosov Endgame Tablebases

i speak of FIDE rules. 50 move rule is a draw there. No weirdo exceptions where it gets more moves of course all that idiocy has been reversed lucky so it's plain and simple now. 50 moves rule is a draw!

Regards,
Vincent

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

Analyze the games Uri. I know you are a weak player OTB especially strategical yet with your correspondence skills where your computer performs pretty well at ICCF, it should be not a big deal to analyze it. 2200 at most yeah. Realize also they had a very bad book. Just some pgn games. No nothing ma...

Re: Lomonosov Endgame Tablebases

I think this is a draw under the 50 move rule, even though lomonosov says mate in 87. The solution posted by Robert Maddox doesn't seem to have any 50 move problems. While there might be some way for black to force one, since Lomonosov doesn't care (?), I think that's unlikely. That's probably beca...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

John, Seriously, if go would've been a world wide game like chess is and chess just would be popular in japan and korea - then in 1997 kasparov would have played go and lost from IBM deep blue go and we would be busy with computerchess right now.
