Published online for the first time, consider this KQBBNPP vs krnnp mate in 5 chess construct composed autonomously by the program, Chesthetica, using the ‘DSNS’ computational creativity approach which does not use any kind of machine or deep learning. This position contains a total of 12 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.
