This project is inspired by Garry Kasparov's "Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins." This fantastic book has evoked my childhood passion, computer chess. I was wondering how hard it could be to develop an engine strong enough to suppress the legendary Deep Blue, so I gave it a try.

The hello world examples in these directories should provide enough to grasp the syntax.

Chess Engine: BrainFish 180622 and book: Cerebellum Light 180611

BrainFish - UCI chess engine, JCER Rating=3389

Information from the author:
Brainfish is a standard Stockfish chess engine extended by a general book format that is capable of handling a reduced part of Cerebellum, which is an innovative chess opening and playing book. In Brainfish, the book moves are only used in engine games, not in analysis mode.

All moves in the published book Cerebellum_light.bin generated by Cerebellum were calculated by using
Stockfish as analysis engine, without using statistics. Then those moves where recalulated by the Cerebellum Library using a graph algorithm that makes all scores in the library consistant. Consistant scores means for example, in case the starting position has a score of 0.2 and a best move is 1.e4, the position after 1.e4 must have the score -0.2. Additionally, some others properties are found, like the best main line of a position and possible Transitions.

Hence, when Brainfish is playing moves that are in the Cerebellum book, it plays like Stockfish regarding the evaluation, only at a much higher skill level. Pondering is only active after the last move out of the book has been played.
