Computer-Generated Chess Problem 02303

Contemplate this ‘KRRBBN vs kbn’ chess problem generated autonomously by the program, Chesthetica, using the ‘Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate’ computational creativity method. It does not use endgame tablebases, artificial neural networks, machine learning or any kind of typical AI. Chesthetica is able to generate to generate various types of mates and study-like constructs and also compose problems using specific combinations of pieces fed into it (e.g. instructing it to compose something using a queen, rook and bishop vs. queen and two knights). Learn more about it on ChessBase. This position contains a total of 9 pieces. The largest endgame tablebase in existence today is for 7 pieces (containing over 500 trillion positions anyway) which means the problem could not have been taken from it regardless.
