Since you’re here...

... we have a small favour to ask. More people, like you, are reading and supporting our blog: "Chess Engines Diary". And unlike many other sites and blogs, we made the choice to keep our articles open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.

We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to continue to exist, because good entries are more and more work time. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support "Chess Engines Diary" even a small amount– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

Chess engine: Stockfish 20092822 and NNUE

Stockfish - UCI chess engine, compiled by Stéphane Nicolet Rating JCER=3294 Timestamp: 1601325746 Include pawns in NNUE scaling We now include the total pawn count in the scaling factor for the output of the NNUE evaluation network. This should have the effect of trying to keep more pawns when SF has the advantage, but exchange them when she is defending. Thanks to Alexander Pagel (Lolligerhans) for the idea of using the value of pawns to ease the comparison with the rest of the material estimation.

Chess engine: Stockfish 20092708 and NNUE

Stockfish - UCI chess engine, compiled by Stéphane Nicolet Rating JCER=3294 Timestamp: 1601187890 Tweak nnue scaling to keep more material Current master uses a constant scale factor of 5/4 = 1.25 for the output of the NNUE network, for compatibility with search and classical evaluation. We modify this scale factor to make it dependent on the phase of the game, going from about 1.5 in the opening to 1.0 for pure pawn endgames. This helps Stockfish to avoid exchanges of pieces (heavy pieces in particular) when she has the advantage, keeping more material on the board when attacking.

New chess engine: Fisherov 0.92 NNUE (modifications to the Stockfish)

  Fisherov - UCI chess engine (NNUE) Fisherov is a chess engine derived from stockfish. Code has been added in various parts to achieve a different style, which becomes more evident by deactivating his neural networks (although this would cause him to significantly lose his strength but he would gain in aggressiveness, which would be interesting for human training or to make him compete against other non-neural chess engines). For greater robustness and competitiveness, the use of a neural network must be left activated (as it already comes by default). The engine already has a network incorporated, although there is also the possibility of using another network from the UCI options. This engine was developed by Luis Damián Primo and Andres Ivan Primo residents of the province of Córdoba, Argentina.  Fisherov 0.92 NNUE download  -  Engine is not publicly available and is non-commercial "Due to a request from the Stockfish team in doubt about compliance with the GNU General Publi
