This is an original ‘KBBNNPP vs kqbnpp’ chess puzzle created by a computer using the computational creativity approach which doesn’t use any kind of traditional AI or even deep learning. Chesthetica has the creative ability to compose positions on an 8×8 canvas that may otherwise take centuries to arise in an actual game, if ever. There is no known limit to the quantity or type of compositions that can be generated. Any chess position over 7 pieces could not possibly have been derived from an endgame tablebase which today is limited to 7 pieces. The accuracy of the main line presented for this study in the solution depends on the engine used and analysis time. The constructed position shown is nevertheless original.
