|Jun-05-06|| ||weisyschwarz: Call the Chess Bookies. I bet a five spot on Pogo to beat EtaBeta! :-|
|Jun-05-06|| ||cotdt: etabeta has extraordinary potential to become the computer chess champion.|
|Jun-05-06|| ||Chopin: <Cotdt>
<etabeta has extraordinary potential to become the computer chess champion.>
In that case, I have extraordinary potential to become the next World Chess Champion. :)
|Jun-05-06|| ||technical draw: etabeta can't beat my computer, eatabagel.|
|Jun-05-06|| ||Chopin: <FreeArcade Chess> would probably crush Etabeta.|
|Jun-05-06|| ||Jilted Rook: Watch out for version 2 - Etaevenbeta|
|Jun-05-06|| ||WannaBe: It's version 3 that's scary, Eta-Beta-Da-Vida (honey)!!|
Or version 4! Eta-Beta-Da-Vinci (code)!!
|Jun-06-06|| ||nikolajewitsch: Does anybody have an idea where I could get this engine? I mean, i could say I have beat an engine that was playing with full strength....|
|Jun-06-06|| ||Chopin: <Does anybody have an idea where I could get this engine?> At a vending machine.|
|Jun-13-06|| ||cotdt: i heard rumors that ETABETA will go commercial in the coming year, and will be cheaper than the other engines, only $40.|
|Jun-13-06|| ||alexmagnus: Who will by the worst engine ever participating in the WCCC? (though it probably could compete with those monsters from 1974).|
|Jun-13-06|| ||cotdt: ETABETA can beat most of the chess players I know, and pretty consistently I'll bet.|
|Jun-13-06|| ||alexmagnus: It misses mates in 1, I doubt it can beat anybody rated over 1100.|
|Jun-13-06|| ||Elixir of Life: <It misses mates in 1, I doubt it can beat anybody rated over 1100?>|
It misses mates in 1? then it definitely must be a neural network. I mean, an orthodox engine, even if running on a computer that calculates 10 variations per second, wouldn't do that!
|Jun-15-06|| ||alexmagnus: Yes, it misses mates in 1, like here:
ETABETA vs Chiron, 2006
|Jun-20-06|| ||WannaBe: You know how Super GMs are playing computers for big money now?|
I will offer myself to play ETABETA (Computer). Provided that I receive a 'nominal' fee of 10 million Euros. Plus hotel, meal, limo, and airfare.
Sounds very reasonable. I'm ready to sign the contract once 1/2 the prize money is deposited in my Swiss account.
|Jul-28-06|| ||dehanne: Yes but if the match is sponsored by FIDE, they will secretly replace ETABETA with Rybka just before the match starts... ;-)|
|Dec-06-06|| ||Karpova: Amazing performance by EtaBeta!
57 games - 57 losses
|Dec-06-06|| ||alexmagnus: Well, put a 1000 rated player in a GM tournament and you see the same.|
|Dec-07-06|| ||nikolajewitsch: I wonder how strong ETABETA is in comparison to the very first chess engine, the Turing engine. I have been experimenting with the Turing engine a little and i find it relatively easy to beat, especially in endgames, although I ausually am a terrible endgame player. If I could get ETABETA, I could let them play against each other...or they should let the Turing engine participate in tournasments like the above mentioned.|
|Dec-07-06|| ||alexmagnus: <nikolajewitsch>. I think ETABETA would beat the Turing engine. ETABETA, in my estimate, plays at a level of about 1000. The Turing engine wasn't even able to beat a beginner (the first computer to beat a human complete beginner played in 1953).|
|Dec-07-06|| ||nikolajewitsch: Well, but the Turing engine didn't actually exist during Turing's times, it was only a theoretical paper on how a chess engine could work. The implementation was not yet possible. The engine I am talking about is relatively young but based on the paper of Turing.|
|Nov-10-07|| ||alexmagnus: <Turing engine> Etabeta may well lose against it! Turing is not bad tactically, it's jus completely messed up strategically (that's why it is so bad in endgames and can't even mate with a lone queen). But Etabeta is weak tactically. I think Turing would easily "outcombinate" Etabeta.|
|Nov-27-08|| ||whiteshark: <57 games - 57 losses>
Well, you have to scroll at the very end, naturally. :D
|Jul-16-12|| ||whiteshark: ETABETA (Computer), a chess engine by <Antonia Jeanrenaud>, competing the WCCC 2006 in Turin. |
ETABETA (Computer), written in Visual Basic, is not a conventional alpha-beta searcher, but uses an own approach to analyse and select a move.
<Alessandro Scotti> on ETABETA (Computer): "This program is the most original I know of, and the only one with the evaluation of a move as written comment on why the move is good or not. Unfortunately, the search of ETABETA (Computer) is too shallow compared to more traditional algorithms, and often remains victim of combinations it realizes too late."
