in #chess3 months ago

What we have here is a 'KQBBNPPP vs kqbbppp' four-move chess problem generated by the prototype computer program, Chesthetica, using the Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate AI computational creativity method. Chesthetica can compose problems that might otherwise take centuries or longer for human composers to think of, so you may enjoy them right now. You can learn more about the DSNS here. Any chess position over 7 pieces could not possibly have been derived from an endgame tablebase which today is limited to 7 pieces.
