Re: UCI_Elo
Added MadChess in TOPSIS ranking.
Re: UCI_Elo
Added Stockfish 10 in the 5000 test positions to see how it would compare to the UCI_Elo 1500 engines.
The result is a bit surprising, it topped the number of match criteria. This would mean that Humans with Elo 1500 is capable of making good moves, perhaps some of these are forced moves like captures and check evasions. If this is the case then uci elo 1500 engine can be adjusted to make stronger moves. But there is a clear difference on Stockfish 10 performance and that is its low LACD at 47cp, or if its move is weak it only gives its opponent a small advantage. So to improve uci elo 1500 approximation, LACD should be increased. Notable engines with high LACD are CT800, Hiarcs, Amyan and MadChess.
Now I got an idea on TOPSIS weights. Modify criteria weight such that Stockfish 10 ranking is bad.
Here is a sample weighing, weight=[0.5, 0.05, 0.05, 0.1, 0.3].
With these weights Stockfish 10 is at rank 14/15.

Re: UCI_Elo
Add new criteria to compare the effect of human move with Elo 1500 and engine move with uci elo 1500. This is called HEMSE or
HEMSE: Human and Engine MSE (Mean Square Error) or Sum((HumanScore  EngineScore)^2)/total, smaller is better. If the score of human move is close to the score of engine move then the human and engine is similar. For same move the MSE is zero because their scores are the same. So even if for a given position the human move is not the save as the engine move, if their score is close according to the judge Stockfish dev 2019.04.16 then there is a high probability that their strength is close.
Add Stockfish 10 ccrl 3000+ engine and Arminius a ccrl 2600+ engine in the test to observe its MSE and use to help determine appropriate weight for TOPSIS. These 2 engines should be ranked lowest when weights are applied in TOPSIS.
Tried to run TOPSIS with weight distributions [0.1, 0.4, 0.5] for criteria [Match, LACD, HEMSE] respectively. By using these weights Stockfish and Arminius are ranked lower.

From the first plot (top, left), human blunders 50 to 150, cp or around 1 pawn from a playable positions [+/50]cp. There is a high occurence when opponen'ts material is still high. Generally high cp loss is observed as own's position gets worse and opponent's material is still high. This info can be used to simulate the uci elo 1500 engines of when to blunder and at what amount.

Re: UCI_Elo
I have not tuned UCI_Elo for Arasan except very approximately. There are some parameters used for strength reduction and I am sure they could be set better than they are. Still, it appears a ELO setting of 1500 is not too far off the mark.

Re: UCI_Elo
I find a problem with the Kai formula for Elo CCRL bass (minor 800 CCRL or 1400 FIDE).
I have been able to establish a relationship between Elo FIDE, Elo USCF and Elo Active ( Elo of dedicated chess machines in
https://www.schachcomputer.info/wiki/i ... EloListe )
I use (formulas of other experts) :
If we take the value of an engine with random moves with an approximate Elo of 250 CCRL this would give an Elo FIDE of more than 1000, Elo USCF of more than 750 and an Elo Active of more than 700 that are the minimum of each list and for the games that I have observed with a player with Elo FIDE 1000 plays much better than an engine with random moves, the players of 1000 points know the value of the pieces and in most plays they do not lose material. Also if we take an engine like Ram with 500 CCRL we can easily see that it will not win a 1200 FIDE. Even Alouette with CCRL 700 will not play as a 1300 FIDE.
In these cases I think it is more approximate:
Elo FIDE = (0.75 x Elo CCRL) + 700 or
Elo FIDE = (0.8 x Elo CCRL) + 560 or even
Elo FIDE = (0.85 x Elo CCRL) + 420
I have applied the 3 formulas progressively, so for example Ram has an ELO FIDE more similar to 850 instead of 1200, a random move has a ELO FIDE of 650 and not 1000 and Alouette will play as 1100 Elo and not 1300.

Code: Select all
ELO USCF <> ELO ACTIVE
Elo USCF = Elo InfoActive + 68
ELO FIDE <> ELO USCF
Elo USCF = 20 + (1.02×Elo FIDE) if Elo FIDE > 1886
Elo USCF = 570 + (Elo FIDE/0.75) if Elo FIDE ≤ 1886
Elo FIDE = (Elo USCF20) / 1.02 if Elo USCF > 1945
Elo FIDE = 0.75 * (570 + Elo USCF) if Elo USCF ≤ 1945
ELO FIDE <> ELO CCRL
Elo FIDE = (0.7 x Elo CCRL) + 840
In these cases I think it is more approximate:
Elo FIDE = (0.75 x Elo CCRL) + 700 or
Elo FIDE = (0.8 x Elo CCRL) + 560 or even
Elo FIDE = (0.85 x Elo CCRL) + 420
I have applied the 3 formulas progressively, so for example Ram has an ELO FIDE more similar to 850 instead of 1200, a random move has a ELO FIDE of 650 and not 1000 and Alouette will play as 1100 Elo and not 1300.

Re: UCI_Elo
A little bit of a tangent: if you get an engine to frequently match the moves of a 1500 player, is there any reason to believe the engine would also be 1500? If you match 95% of moves, what are in the 5%? Probably all the dumb blunders. So I would think you would end up with something that picks 1500level quality moves, but never blunders, and it would actually be maybe 200 elo stronger in practice. Or am I missing something?
