Re: Fritjof: a basic hnefatafl games review software

I'd suggest splitting the file based on re.compile("\t?\n").split(s) instead of that hard to read loop in convertfile. The overall parsing is much harder to read than it needs to be due to the lack of split where aplliable (you don't need regexes in most cases). Stuff like ax1,ax2,ax3,ax4,ax5 belong...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

I may have access to a supercomputing center if needed (not sure if it must be dedicated to my pro projects or if there is some tolerance...) Supercomputers are build to have crazy ram with crazy contentedness. We don't need need that, we need a lot of games being played to learn from that. That is...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

Yes after playing a bit with the code I realized by myself that this method couldn't be blindly applied to hnefatafl. Actually it already takes a very long time to get an acceptable AI playing connect4. I think it might. At least if you have a few millions to spend on hardware and power. Some peopl...

Re: Repetition of moves: some dubious positions

You are making very suspicious judgements. We could try to clutter the rules with a lot of extensions, which are just rulings of single cases. Imho that is just awful and will never lead to understandable, easy or concise rules...and I'm not sure if they will be formal correct that way like ever. I ...

Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

Hi Ytreza! Thank you for your interest! I lacked the motivation to try something completely myself, but the idea was indeed to use tensorflow (or some framework based on tf). It's somewhat simple, yet still very hairy in the details of getting the C/C++ and python parts to interact properly and coor...

Re: Nath-project

I studied mathematical logic, what's your field? My field is topology. It looks like neither of us are serious enough about programming tafl: if you were serious you;d start with brandubh, if I were serious I'd be using C. :) I'm serious about Copenhagen, yet I'm ready to start with a variant witho...

Re: Nath-project

Are you a math student? If math wouldn't be my profession, I probably wouldn't dare to speak so freely. Though I have to admit, that I did some programming since then. Are you talking about edge forts? That might totally be. I was using that technique for edge forts during my games. Yes, you could ...

Re: The State Of Play Tafl Online

Sorry for the slow reply, I had a busy week. I didn't look much at the code. Both the chess and the go version have a cpp movegen and use tf in the backend, which seems to be the only sane decision at the moment (at least unless you are a big company doing something very unusual). From the data scie...

Re: The State Of Play Tafl Online

Deep Mind's achievement is very impressive, but I don't think there was any real conceptual breakthrough that wouldn't have occurred to most people in the field. The thing that was impressive, was to collaboration of the ML-scientists, programmers and the data centers. Another interesting part was ...

Re: Nath-project

Solve it first, then brag about being too smart for it. I'm not smart and I never intended to give the impression. I just have the impression you are trying to taunt me. I guess you can't offload that work on to me. :roll: I was under the impression you're a programming grad student, am I wrong abo...
