Computer-Generated Chess Problem 02851

in #chess18 days ago

Now, this is a 'KRBNP vs kqn' chess construct composed autonomously by a computer program, Chesthetica, using the 'Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate' computational creativity method. It does not use endgame tablebases, artificial neural networks, machine learning or any kind of typical AI. The chess board is a virtually limitless canvas for the expression of creative ideas (even by computer). There is also no proven limit to the quantity or type of legal compositions that can be automatically generated. The position below contains 8 pieces which means it simply could not have been derived even from an existing endgame tablebase which is presently limited to 7 pieces.
