Computer-Generated Chess Problem 02871

in #chess19 days ago

Consider this 'KRBBNPP vs kbp' #4 chess puzzle or problem (whichever you wish to call it) composed by the prototype computer program, Chesthetica, using the Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate AI computational creativity method. There is also no proven limit to the quantity or type of legal compositions that can be automatically generated. The position below contains 10 pieces which means it simply could not have been derived even from an existing endgame tablebase which is presently limited to 7 pieces.

A seemingly earlier version of Chesthetica on a problem composed later (based on the date and time stamp) simply means that version may have been running on a different computer or operating system user account. Everything composed by Chesthetica is original. Do share and try out some of the others too. Solving chess puzzles like this can be good for your health as it keeps your brain active. It may even delay or prevent dementia.
