Part 2
  [11] Chess-Playing Computers & Software The Swedish Rating

Subject: [11] Chess-Playing Computers & Software

This section has been reviesed and will be undergoing further major revision
for the next issue of the FAQ. This will probably appear before June is over.
There are numerous dedicated chess-playing computers available commercially,
as well as chess-playing software for various personal computers.  Prices vary
from perhaps $10,000 for the most expensive dedicated computer to perhaps $30
for the cheapest software (see [20]).  The differences are basically how
strong the machine (or software) plays, and the other features it has to offer
(e.g., for dedicated machines:  size of board, wood/plastic, autosensory or
"push the pieces," etc.).

When purchasing a chess computer or software, it is best to buy something
which plays at least 300 points above your rating.  The Swedish list ratings
are ELO ratings.  ELO ratings may be lower than USCF ratings by 50 to 250
points. The 2431 rating of "Genius" is estimated to be approximately the
equivalent of 2650 USCF rating.

A computer may assist in your learning in many ways. One of the best uses is
to auto-analyze your own games. Find out where you have erred and what
better lines were available. You may also set up positions that are of
interest or play out lines against the computer. If you are working on a
specific opening, you may play a vairiety of continuations against the
computer. Both middle game and endgame practice are also useful. Set up positions
that are in the instructional books you are reading. Playing against the
computer is excellent practise. Most people recommend setting up a board,
rather than just keeping the position on screen. Unless of course you
are cramming for the ICS.

The level of play now attainable on your personal computer has reached that
of being able to win against master level and above players. Even world
champion super-GM Garry Kasparov has lost to more than one chess software
program which would be available to anyone. (Fritz and Genius in speed play)
Recently on ICC a GM lost 4 to 5 five minute blitz games in a row to Chess
Genius playing on a Pentium. He tried to win using tactics rather than postional
strategy. These were casual games, to be sure, but, none the less, computer
chess has come a long way since David Levy, in 1968, made a bet that a computer
could not, within 10 years win a match against him. In 1975, David Levy was
able to undertake, and come out well ahead, in a simultaneous exhibition
against 12 chess computers. I don't think any GM would enjoy doing that now.

In several books David Levy and Raymond Keene detail their strategy to win
against computer opponents. They suggest avoiding tactics, concentrating
instead on postiional advantages and using long term strategy to slowly build
an advantage. Some of their suggestions include: allowing your computer
opponent to castle first, then castle on the opposite wing and launch a pawn
storm.

Software programs typically use a wide band width brute force search,
combined with an in depth search for tactically active lines.

Here's the latest SSDF-rating list from Sweden. The SSSDf are using
new autotesting equipment. The 2.400+ rating achieved by Chess Genius 3.0 (Pentium 90) is the highest
rating ever achieved by any program in SSDF's history! (approx. 2.650 USCF!)

The following list was supplied by Mads Brevik, computer science student at
Kongsberg College of Engineering.(mads2@tott.kih.no) Add 180 points for
USCF equivalent ratings.

'The Swedish Ratinglist may be quoted in other magazines, but we insist that
this will be done in a correct way!  We expect, that not only the rating figures,
but also the number of games and the margin of error will be quoted.
This list is primarily made for the members of the Swedish Chess Computer
Association.  The details of the testwork are described in our Swedish magazine
PLY, where you for instance can find the names of the tester for every single

The list was posted with the following request:
"The Swedish Rating list may be quoted in other magazines, but we insist that this will be done in a correct way!  We expect, that not
only the rating figures, but also the number of games and the margin of error
will be quoted.

This list is primarily made for the members of the Swedish Chess Computer Association.  The details
of the testwork are described in our Swedish magazine PLY, where you for instance can find the names
of the tester for every single result!  Note that all games are played on the tournament level -
40/2 hrs. "

There are a number of non-commercial chess-playing machines, the strongest
and most famous of which is "Deep Thought."  Deep Thought was built and
programmed by graduate students Feng-Hsiung Hsu, Thomas Anantharaman, Murray
Campbell, Peter Jansen, Mike Browne, and Andreas Nowatzyk at Carnegie Mellon
University, and who are now working (some of them, anyway) for IBM.  The
current version of Deep Thought has beaten several GM's and many IM's.  It
has a USCF rating of about 2520.  (The Oct. 1990 issue of _Scientific
American_ goes into more detail on Deep Thought.)  Another Carnegie Mellon
product, "Hitech," was developed by former World Correspondence Champion Dr.
Hans Berliner and sports a USCF rating just over 2400.
