Re: Aquarium IDEA question.

Will its analysis create a database and make a chess engine stronger by allowing it to access it during a game? Thanks for any input. If you mean "using a database as an opening book", then yes -- Aquarium supports it. Even supports linking your iDea analysis tree as an opening book :) You'll need ...

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

thats pretty much an imputation from my personal point of view and my experience tells me not to do so if there is no evidence for such claims..to tell people that google manipulated the entries to get a result that was intended to get because otherwise it would not have been possible or likely is ...

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

From the interview Albert says (quote) "As to whether it will be commercial, who can say... If I come out with something that's really spectacular and that outdoes Alphazero, very possibly. Right now at the moment, it's a private project." Since February, the gpu's are crowd-sourced. From all the kn...

Re: TCEC season 13, 2 NN engines will be participating, Leela and Deus X

Since Nelson is calling him a developer, did he actually develop a new engine or just a new net ?

Surprising that TCEC allows that -- maybe Asmfish, Brainfish and CFish could play too !!

Re: will Leela ever solve this ?

100 kn/s was Rybka, which obfuscates the number so we will never know the real data. You don't need to run SF9 to "compare strength", there's something called "elo" you know... Still, that's not the point of the stream, so no SF 9, for now... Well, I really don't understand why you use only one cor...
