Chess engine: Brainfish 180829 and book: Cerebellum Light 180611

Brainfish - UCI chess engine, JCER Rating=3469

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.

Rating JCER=3090, Author: Milos Tatarevic

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.

Chess engine: Rofchade 1.0

Rofchade is a UCI chess engine written in C++.
Author- Ronald Friederich.

There are 3 versions of rofchade: 
1.the regular version,
2.the bmi2 version
3.the nopopcnt version.

If you have an Intel processor type Haswell or later (introduced june 2013) then the fastest rofchade version is the bmi2.
If you have an AMD processor (Ryzen, Threadripper etc.) or an Intel processor before Haswell use the regular version.
NB the bmi2 version is much slower on the AMD processors so don't use that version on AMD
If you have an older processor without popcount support (Intel before Nehalem, AMD before Phenom) use the nopopcnt version

Statement From LCZero Core Dev Team (07-08-2018)

Update from LCZero core devs team on DeusX TCEC entry



Two days before start of TCEC season 13, it was revealed that “DeusX engine” is just a set of NN weights trained by Albert Silver for the Lc0 engine.

The LCZero team had a very short period to analyze the situation and react to it, especially given that members of LCZero core dev team were in different timezones or on vacation, and given that even after the announcement it was not completely clear what the “DeusX engine” exactly was and which tools were used to produce the weights.

Because of this, and to avoid damaging the reputation of TCEC, we agreed to allow “DeusX engine” to participate in the TCEC.

Now that the dust has settled and we’ve had time to coordinate we would like to rectify a few things.

Albert Silver produced his set of the neural network weights using supervised learning. To do that, he needed incomparably less effort relative to the effort that he reused from the LCZero project, as the LCZero team had all the implementation work done, including building tools for the supervised training and the engine itself, defining neural network architecture etc. Given that, the work should NOT have been allowed into TCEC.

Albert Silver decided to hide information both from the LCZero community (by asking TCEC administration to be secret until the very last moment), and from TCEC administration (by not sharing appropriate information about importance of the engine vs neural network weights).

The team welcomes open and fair usage of the engine and tools around it, but in this case it was certainly not fair. We strongly condemn Albert’s submission which may be seen as plagiarism, and poor behavior.

    The LCZero core developers.

Chess engine: McBrain 9.6

Rating JCER=3349

McBrain is a Stockfish based chess engine ( directly derived from the Stockfish source).
Stockfish is currently the strongest chess engine in the world. McBrain also features the Cerebellum book and code used by Brainfish (a Stockfish (SF) based engine by Thomas Zipproth - with the Cerebellum book enabled it will play about 30 ELO stronger than Standard Stockfish.
