The Intel i9, with affordable 8 core CPUs, and a 18-core extreme model.
So up to another game, as normal Draughts is going into draw mode...
Which game do you suggest? I think chess is the only other game left where MC and/or ML haven't taken over (yet...)
There are still some challenges left in draughts. Scan is still capable of losing about 1 in 4 games, at least on the short time scales that i tested (i'll post some test results later)
Here is a challenge for you: consider these two positions:
1) The starting position
2) a 1 king vs 1 king position
Current engines will evaluate both positions as about 0.000
For position 2 that's correct, but for position 1 that's plainly wrong, since it depends on who you are playing against. Maybe it should be evaluated as an 80% win, maybe as low as 40%.
Evaluating to 0.000, current programs give up the fight before they even start their first move, and so cause a too large draw rate against grandmasters and other (weaker) opponents. While with some opponent modeling you might increase your win rate a lot.
