The new Komodo 13 MCTS has been announced with the claim that:
Komodo 13 MCTS thinks like no other chess engine in the world. Inspired by the ideas of AlphaZero and Leela, Larry and Mark set out to reinvent Komodo. What they came up with was Komodo 13 MCTS - a engine which searches for candidate moves in an incredible new way, and finds moves no other engine can
They are clearly trying to cash in on the publicity behind AlphaZero and LeelaZero. But is the hype justified?
There seems to be no mention of an AlphaZero like database of training results. Is the use of MCTS on its own enough to produce worthwhile improvements? More detailed information seems to be hard to find (possibly for commercial reasons).
