Seer 2.5.0 released
Updated: Jun 28, 2022
Seer - one of the few chess engines that plays with a strength of over 3400 Elo (!) has been released in the latest version 2.5.0.
Here is what engine author Mr. Connor McMonigle wrote about this release:
"I've released a new version of Seer here: https://github.com/connormcmonigle/seer ... tag/v2.5.0. This release adds around 100 Elo in self play.
This release adds roughly 100 Elo in self play. The majority of this strength improvement can be attributed to a variety of miscellaneous optimizations and an improved network trained by way of several further self play training iterations. Additionally, time management was revisited with this release which should notably improve performance at shorter time controls. As with the prior release, the embedded network was trained solely on data originating from Seer produced by way of several self play iterations starting with the initial "retrograde learning" network bundled with v2.0.0-v2.1.0 as a base."
