Computer-Generated Chess Problem 03547

in chess •  last month 

Now, this is a 'KQRN vs krpp' three-move chess puzzle by a computer using the DSNS computational creativity approach which doesn't use any kind of traditional AI. Chesthetica has the creative ability to compose positions that may otherwise take centuries to arise in an actual game, if ever. Depending on the type and complexity of the problem desired, a single instance of Chesthetica running on a desktop computer can probably generate anywhere between one and ten problems per hour. 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.

These chess puzzles are published in order based on the composition date and time stamp above. Due to the sheer volume of compositions generated, the latest ones may therefore only be published later on. White has a decisive material advantage in this position but the winning sequence may not be immediately clear. Do share and try out some of the others too. Solving chess puzzles like this is probably good for your health as it keeps your brain active. Nobody wants something like early-onset Alzheimer's.
