Millionaire Chess Open Call Agenda 2/5/14

Notes for Call (2/5/14)

  • Boomerange detection progress: how good is that bishop move?
  • => get "free" material on first move which leads to catastrophe later
  • => 180: Alekhine-Levenfish (ideal)
  • => maybe Rasmusson-Niemi
  • => 184: Lasker-Ragozin
  • => 176: Nielsen-Amateur (black's POV)
  • => 174: Richter-Amateur @ 3-pli
  • => important to search odd plies
  • How is score calculated? centipawns vs. position
  • => includes position aspects: development, pawn structure, open files, movement
  • => See Stockfish weight calculation
  • => Traits: "Mobility, Pawn Structure, Passed Pawns, Space, Cowardice, Agressiveness"
  • => "Positional (Petrosion) vs. Tactical (Tal) players"
  • => Understanding current position relative to trend in player's history
  • => Delta in traits between player history and current position/move
  • Predicting the next move: capturing user styles
  • => Humans give different weights
  • => Can we learn weights for individual players from game archives
  • => TODO: Ask Stockfish where their weights came from
  • New move metric: how "deep" is this move?
  • Run search with progressively increasing depth and see when it changes
  • For Rabinovich-Nimzovich Baden, Baden '25
    go depth 2/4/6 => bestmove e2d4 ponder f6d6
    go depth 12 => bestmove e3e4 ponder d5d2
    go depth 16 => bestmove g1f1 ponder d5d2
    go depth 32 => bestmove g1f1 ponder d5d2
  • Drama = Character (style) + Situation (boomerang) "Augmenting Chess Storytelling"
  • Sheldon Lazarus (american memory association): science
  • Deep Blue : Intelligence :: This : Empathy
