The grandmasters have already learned to live in a world in which they have repeatedly fought with virtual rivals. Now they are watching how the neural network engines, originally created for completely different purposes, have come to their place.
Last weekend, the Leela Chess Zero (Lc0) neural network engine won a gold medal at the World Championship in computer chess.
The open-source project Lc0 made headlines due to the victory of its main competitor, the Stockfish neural network.
Stockfish is four-time Top Chess Engine Championship (TCEC) champion, lost to Lc0 with a score of 167,5:300.
Whether Lc0 can continue to defend his title remains to be seen. The next tournament, in which the neural network will participate, will be CCC 8: Deep Dive.
