Taipan 1.0 - an extremely strong chess engine

Post by Krylo » Thu Jan 22, 2015 9:15 pm

Taipan is an immensely robust UCI chess engine that is written to give precise chess analysis and ofcourse, play strong chess. Furthermore, It's elo is estimated to be around 3300-3400! It would be safe to say that it's much stronger than any human grandmaster in history! The name of this chess engine is derived from the most venomous snake in the world, Taipan.

I started working on Taipan in late 2013 but due to some incessant issues, the project was put on hold. It take a whole year to finish and wrap it up! Plus, another long month to test it against other engines.

It does extremely well against the likes of Stockfish, Gull, Komodo and Houdini. I am proud to say that in a 10-game match against Stockfish 6 RC1, Taipan won 2 games, lost one and drew the rest. This is absolutely wonderful for a new engine to beat arguably the strongest chess engine in the world in a 10-game match. 10 games may be too low, but for me; Taipan's win is still amazing!

Hi Leonard,

I think that you made a mistake. Instead of

Taipan 1.0 - Author: Leonard Krylo

It should read

Taipan 1.0 - Author: Tord Romstad, Marco Costalba and Joona Kiiski

Edit: Instead of Leonard, I probably should have called you Patrick or Laz
