Here is a new ‘KBBN vs kp’ #4 chess puzzle or problem (whichever you wish to call it) composed by the prototype computer program, Chesthetica, using the Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate (DSNS) computational creativity approach. It doesn’t use endgame tablebases, deep learning or any kind of traditional AI. Chesthetica is able to generate mates in 3, mates in 4, mates in 5, study-like constructs and also compose problems using specific combinations of pieces fed into it (e.g. to compose something using a rook, bishop, knight and three pawns vs. a queen and a rook).

If you notice an earlier version of Chesthetica listed with a newer problem, that simply means an earlier version may have been running on a different computer or OS user account. Okay, let me think for a minute if there’s anything else to say here. Do share and try out some of the others too. Feel free to copy the position into a chess engine and discover even more variations of the solution.
