Details of Program: QYZ


Written by: Basaldúa, Jacques


QYZ is an engine only, it uses GoKnot as its front end. It is written in C, Pascal, and Assembler. It uses Monte Carlo Tree Search, guided by Direction of Play.

It uses the name "Quasiwise".

"QYZ learned go from humans, it has huge databases of: urgency, fuseki, joseki and the distributions of a huge set of estimators.
       It has over 70,000 lines of assembly language performing pattern matching at almost no cost in terms of slowdown, but searching patterns in tables that do not fit in CPU cache can hardly be done any faster. Note that each cell keeps information about its 40 nearest neighbors."
