Rounds 16-20 and Mach

First, I finished rounds 16-20, though I haven’t yet played the winner. It’s getting a bit cumbersome to post images of the output after each round, so instead, I’ll be posting data from my spreadsheets.

Second, I bought an older machine on Craigslist to use as a home media server. It’s got a quad-core AMD processor, so I also grabbed some more RAM and a new graphics card; specifically, the NVidia GTX 1060 with 3GB of VRAM. While the 6Gb model performs better in gaming, the 3GB model performs identically in compute, while still being decent for gaming at 1080p (the TV it’ll be hooked up to). This means I’ll be able to finish training rounds much more quickly.

Also, I’m going to be re-tooling my utilities to output the data in a more friendly format. For now, though, here are the results of rounds 16-20.

Results

Now, grouping the results by width and depth, we have the following for the Round Robin:

Depth
1 51 47 48 48 48
2 45 49 50 50 44
3 47 46 49 46 48
4 47 48 47 50 50
5 50 51 48 48 51
Width
100 54 53 55 57 58
250 50 49 45 49 47
500 47 42 45 42 44
1000 47 48 52 43 45
2500 44 48 44 48 42
5000 46 49 47 48 52

Whereas before there was a slight tendency toward deeper networks, it is ever so slightly less pronounced here (the 5 layer networks collectively won 51% of their games instead of 52%). Also, we seem to have reversed the trend of narrow networks winning… With the exception of the 100 node wide ones, that is. They simply cleaned up.

Now, for absolute number of games won out of 100 matches against the SRP:

1 x 36 42 38 41 43
2 x 38 39 38 38 44
3 x 35 38 31 37 40
4 x 29 35 35 34 37
5 x 26 30 32 34 38
x 100 17 19 18 17 20
x 250 26 25 24 26 26
x 500 25 29 28 35 37
x 1000 31 33 33 37 39
x 2500 31 41 34 36 38
x 5000 33 37 35 35 40

This is quite promising. Almost all categories collectively improved (the 250 node wide networks had no change as a group). Additionally, the shallow networks’ lead over the deeper networks has narrowed considerably. We’ll see what additional rounds bring, if the deep networks finally catch up.

As for the wide networks, they maintain roughly the same advantage over the narrow networks as before.
