SIMEX 2.1

Made an update, changes: 1. New MEA that fixes a speed issue when running under Win10. MEA was extremely slow, is OK now and even runs faster on Win 7 systems. 2. Cosmetic changes to the HTML output that makes it better readable. It will no longer mark versions of the same engine as orange (similari...

Re: Similarity tester - 2nd generation - BETA

Would be interesting to compare leela (with different networks) to all the other usual AB engines My impression - not sure if that's true or not, so I'd like to see it tested - is that SF10's play is more similar to LC0 than e.g. SF9 was. That would make sense because if LC0's style is the "chess t...

Re: Similarity tester - 2nd generation - BETA

Chris Whittington created SIMEX EPD sets of each 10,000 positions. Each set contains a specific piece distribution. In total 100 sets representing the most common board positions in use.

Re: What the heck happens here?

I took the Sim tester which has some 8,000+ quiet positions with unclear best move and tested engines, including versions of Lc0 nets, all at 1 second / position and additionally SF_dev at much longer 10s/position and 30s/poisition. Also, for some check, one Lc0 at 0.2s/position. Can you zip simila...

Re: Where did all these 3400 engines come from?

The idea behind chess is to mate. For that you need a plan. Otherwise you run around on the board without understanding and IMO you do not play chess but survive. If an engine plays 2600+ ELO but is not planning to mate, it has IMO no understanding of the game. Ok it plays 2600 elo. But is chess ru...

Re: Similarity tester - 2nd generation - BETA

Did another experiment, run engines at depth=1 only, canceling (the main) search, thus testing mainly the evaluation function for similarity. It isn't perfect since engines may vary how they handle checks in QS, I have also seen engines extend root moves. But in general it will just work. Example:1 ...

Re: Does computer chess sponsorship exist?

AMD sponsored the match against Anand. Aegon sponsored the Aegon tournaments. The 4 Maastricht (comp vs GM) events were sponsored by Dutch companies but these times are definitely over.
