Re: Neural networks artificial intelligence

@Fishbreath: Do you think we can get the code nice and clean? I see that as the major issue. I actually say I'm very much interested in that route, and wouldn't mind contributing. Please don't compare everything to chess - that's a totally different game. Chess has much more complex representation b...

Re: Advices?

In case anybody is interested I'd love to contribute my knowledge about the game. While I've slightly gotten out of shape (Casshern and Plantagenet would almost surely beat me right now) recent years, I feel like there are a few basic concepts that really help with understanding game positions (gamb...

Re: Nath-project

If anybody thinks about revisiting this. Recent results of Leela Chess Zero show that a lot of this can be done with less resources. I think that these neronal stuff work much better with Hnefatafl than with chess, because we have an incredibly simple way of representing the features of the position...

Re: Youtube channel

I think the problem with the speech is not the overall volume (which can be increase fairly easily), but little dynamic variation of the voice which is probably due the same reason. I think it makes it less engaging to listen to, specially for players not used to the material overall. I'd be very in...

Re: Compiling a list of openings

My point is that we aren't getting anywhere near that "large population". You need a few geniuses to get closer to the perfect play, and despite our community stagnated a couple of years, there is some promise that players pick up the struggle to progress the game again. A lot of these tables only a...

Re: Nath-project

I'd never want to limit the ways we explore the game in any way. I don't have the gift of perfect foresight. I came to think in the past three years that NNs might even be better, since they might be used tell us something qualitative (not just in a quantitative "comparing" sense) about the game, wh...

Re: archive

I think I have a couple statements, why I doubt this holds true: 0. I think there are very few players actually developing opening lines. I noticed Plantagenet playing some adjusted to his playing style, but I doubt they are particular strong, they just show some perfection, because he is a strong p...

Re: Compiling a list of openings

Are you sure that judgment of 75 % (or higher) is accurate? I think if you let people like Plantagenet and me face off each other the result would be that drastic. What are you trying to measure? What do these probability even mean? Looking at the players there where a few players in there, who are ...

Re: archive

@Hagbard: Thank you! That helps a lot!

@ edmond_dantes: Why? If you want the game to stay in it's infant stages - maybe. Don't you trust the depth this game actually has?
