Published online for the first time, consider this KRRBP vs knppp mate in 5 chess puzzle created by the program, Chesthetica, 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. The largest endgame tablebase in existence today is for 7 pieces (Lomonosov) which contains over 500 trillion positions, most of which have not been seen by human eyes. This problem with 10 pieces goes even beyond that and was therefore composed without any such help.
