I don't think so, even if NN or A/B engines become much stronger. The human touch is still unique and powerful in ways engines will never understand. That is why hand tuned books will still play a significant role in chess!

Well, human touch may work differently today as compared to 10 years ago. Noone can soundly say "I'll keep that variation in book even though a 3600 elo-engine marks it as bad". However, the human touch may be to complement LC0's lines with an A/B engine or vice versa in intuitive ways, considering specifc input depending on varying parameters or such.
I do not agree. In 10 years it is perhaps known that one or two opening moves (1.e4 e5 or 1.d4 Nf6) are best and that all such games will be a draw. And furthermore that all other opening moves will badly loose.DavidG wrote: ↑Fri Aug 30, 2019 5:26 pmGentlemen,
I believe that in 10 years, computer chess will have advanced to the stage where every game will be a draw. Lines will be so perfect, and blunders so rare, such as to render the game of chess "solved". This will increase the popularity of ancillary chess games such as Fischer Random chess.
