Projects / EvoChess


EvoChess is a scientific experiment that uses Internet-connected computers in the evolution of chess playing programs. You can participate by running qoopy, an environment for distributed computing as done by EvoChess. The users can start their own evolution to develop a variety of chess programs. The better ones will survive and produce offspring, who inherit their successful behavior encoded in their genotype. To run it, Java 1.3 must be installed.

    Release Notes: The evolution has been partly restarted with new but compatible chess-playing individuals, characterized by a more sophisticated and experimental behavior in search. It is possible to replace, initialize, mutate, and recombine individuals manually. Individuals can also be loaded from a file into the population, weak playing individuals will be identified and replaced quickly, and good ones will skip the first games.
