Computer-Generated Chess Problem 02850

in #chess19 days ago

What we have here is a 'KQBPP vs krb' mate in 4 chess construct composed autonomously by a computer using the approach known as the DSNS from the sub-field of AI, computational creativity. There is also no proven limit to the quantity or type of legal compositions that can be automatically generated. Any chess position with this many pieces could not possibly have been obtained from known endgame databases. Chesthetica is therefore the real McCoy.

Some of the earliest chess problems by humans are over 10 centuries old but original ones by computer are very recent. White is over a rook's worth in material but the precise win in this position still needs to be found. Leave a comment below, if you like. Over time, the tactics you see in these puzzles will help you improve your game. Anyway, if standard chess isn't your thing, you might instead like SSCC.
