    I've been watching this progress. Will be interesting to see how far LCZero and DeusX progress. Also watching Kingcrusher and his review of leela games on YouTube.
    Very interesting. Will be curious to see their impact on master level chess.

    At least I have heard of and seen videos by kingcrusher. The rest I have no clue.

    They are chess engines. You can google TCEC chess to learn more.

    ..they are artificial intelligence (similar to Googles Alpha zero), rather than the traditional Chess engine, to be precise. 😉

    Depends on your definition of chess engine, I suppose. If it plays chess and is nonhuman, then engine seems to fit.

    And I am still not convinced that an improved Monte Carlo device with lots of processing power is as big a "wow" as it is made out to be, but that is fuel for another thread, I think!

    People interested in computer chess might want to download for free "Human versus Machine": https://www.amazon.com/Human-Versus-Machine-Stockfish-Komodo-ebook/dp/B0768G8R2C/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr= as part of a promotion.
    Learn how to handle the top engines.

    Yes i suppose you are right, they are both computers. I am quite excited by this advancement though. Some of the Alpha zero games were just out of this world! I have never found engine games interesting to look at in the past. These new engines are playing in such an interesting style, it is like watching a genetically engineered super human. 🙂
