Computer Chess Engines have gotten stronger each year with current engines like Alphazero, Stockfish, Komodo, and Leela Chess Zero reaching new levels of perfection monthly! Check out how computer engines have developed in the last 30+ years, from weak machines, easily dominated by humans, to monsters!

  1. Bigest turn in the world ,alphazero defeated stockfish with double attack by bishop and the rook checkmating the king at h8

  2. But when we know how alphazero has nuked stockfish…

  3. Can anyone tell how come chess bot's elo increasing or decreasing

  4. 2023:chatgpt chess(3900 elo)(unlogical move)

  5. i can just a move pawn 1 square and stockfish can calculate mate in 69

  6. Leela Chess coming out of nowhere:

  7. Y'all clearly missed the 1000 games with Stockfish and Alphazero

  8. And now it is 4046… Just brilliant

  9. My only critique is that some of these are chess computers, not chess engines.

    Also, chess engines are a bit older than the 1980's, going back into the 60's and 70's. Sargon in the late 70's and early 80's played around the level of midrange club player, but could take up to half an hour to make a move at the highest difficulty levels.

  10. which software you can use to create a running graph like this

  11. I could easily…very very easily program a chess gram that would exterminate everyone and you'd never win…and it's so easy…

  12. You know where this is getting when you see stockfish on the line

  13. If google wants they can definitely drop another Alpha and destroy all other engines but unfortunately chess is not profitable so they will not invest in it

  14. I think chess can be solved. In about 128 years at the current pace.

  15. I knew Alpha Zero. For 2, 3 years I didn't follow chess news and thought Leela Zero is the latest name of Alpha Zero and assumed both are same.

  16. Would like to see Super Grand Masters play against Least Rated Chess Engines in this list and win

  17. Stockfish is the super sayan of chess engines

  18. WHERE DA CAT MITTENS I thought it was third

  19. me : searching and playing my best moves
    SF: pushes the pawn which is at the end of the universe :{

  20. Stockfish after mating every grandmaster :🙂

  21. But no MuZero ? Beats AlphaZero as we know.

  22. The Murkekos Stars game would also need strong artificial intelligence in the future.

  23. Me: hangs pawn
    Stockfish: Blunder!!!!
    Alpha zero: BRILLIANT!!

  24. How did you know the data of the bots?

  25. Strongest chess engineer engine you have experiment family to experiment

  26. I wonder what Stockfish 20 will suggest to everyone…

  27. I think still alpha zero has been the best chess bot i mean its incredible playing and beat stockfish 155-6 is disgusting i mean alpha zero literally in my opinion is better then stockfish maybe 16 is better

  28. Kasparov vs World is hard to beat. One move per 24 hours and he was up against an army of grandmasters, computers (yes weaker than today but still) etc

  29. I thought leela chess zero was the same with alphazero 😂😭

  30. Hi everyone! Here are some notes on our data sources. In general, it's very hard to properly benchmark computer engines, especially Deep Blue, AlphaZero, Leela Chess Zero, etc. We used the best available data and plan to publish updates in future as rating estimates for 2020 and further are made available.
    The primary data source is the SSDF (https://ssdf.bosjo.net/list.htm) list as collected from online sources and publications in the International Computer Chess Association Journals (later named International Computer Games Association). Deep Blue's Elo Performance is estimated by perf. against Kasparov. AlphaZero's Elo Performance is estimated by perf. against Stockfish. Leela Chess Zero's Elo Performance is provided by the Leela community: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XSJiCcQpCLv0fNwrUn7jXjdkZFU63YFEWpdXv6dSSg0/edit#gid=312836954
