July KGS bot tournament: 19x19, two divisions

The July KGS bot tournament will be on Sunday, July 10th, starting at 16:00 UTC and ending by 22:05 UTC.  It will use 19x19 boards, with time limits of 29 minutes each plus very fast Canadian overtime, and komi of .  

It will be a Swiss tournament, with two divisions.  Only bots that have shown that they can beat gnugo3pt8 (currently paying as 5k on KGS) may enter the Formal Division. Bots of any strength may enter the Open Division. If there are fewer than three entrants (not counting gnugo3pt8) for the Formal Division, they will be transferred to the Open Division, and the Formal Division will be cancelled.



Please register by emailing me at maproom <at> gmail.com, with the words "KGS Tournament Registration" in the email title, saying which division you want to play in.

cgos <--> kgs rating


Hay,

I wonder if somebody has the same program (with the same settings)
rated on cgos 19x19 and kgs?

I am still fighting with resigning in the case of value-network and
playouts disagree, so I can not run oakfoam on kgs, but would like to
have a strength hint :)

Thanks Detlef

Scoring Network

Has anyone ever tried to build a value network that is trained on finished positions?
I admit that would be less awesome than what AlphaGo's value network has achieved.
But reducing the task to status and scoring might help in endgame play.
Generalizing this, there could be several value networks, each specialized on a different stage of the game.

KGS 8-dan and strong opponents

Hi,

for the first time there is a bot with "stable" 8-dan rank on KGS:
Zen19A, an alternative Zen account.

http://www.gokgs.com/gameArchives.jsp?user=zen19a

Congratulations to the Zen team! 

And an observation:
Already several games against human players with 8-dan 
or 9-dan rank have been played by Zen19A in the last 
12 hours.

Likely, opponents in this strong range will help the
programmers to improve their brainchild further. 

Ingo.

"Spam" by ResearchGate.net

Researchgate is a scam. Try Academia.edu. It seems very OK.
Best,

Offtopic: "Spam" by ResearchGate.net

Hello all,

I am writing this because others here may have made similar experiences
and found a solution. Some years ago I subscribed to a service
by ResearchGate.net . They claim to offer the opportunity
to share information about scientific publications ...

After some months I realized that the advantage of being in their
database in small, whereas their very frequent mails (asking details
about this or that ...) costs too much time. 
So I pressed the "unsubscribe" button. It turned out that it did
not help. In the meantime I pressed the unsubscribe buttom of
ResearGate.net for more than 20 times, but still get mails from
them every few weeks. 
On their website no email address for feedback is offered. 

Does someone of you know a proper email address or found some
other solution to this "spam"-problem?

Thanks in advance,
Ingo.
