Computer-Generated Chess Problem 03369
What we have here is a 'KRBBN vs kbp' mate in 4 chess construct composed autonomously by the program, Chesthetica, using the Digital Synaptic Neural Substrate AI computational creativity method. Chesthetica can compose problems that might otherwise take centuries or longer for human composers to think of, so you may enjoy them right now. Chesthetica is able to generate mates in 2, 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., composing something original using only a rook vs. five pawns). Read more about it on ChessBase. Noteworthy here is that a chess position with over 7 pieces could not have been derived or taken from an endgame tablebase because 7 pieces is the present limit.

If you notice any version of Chesthetica 'skipped' from one problem to the next, that simply means additional (minor) changes were made to the program before it was set to run again. White has a rook, a knight and a bishop for Black's pawn. Do you think you could have composed something better with these pieces? Share in the comments and let us know how long it took you. Some of these problems may be trivial for you, especially if you're a club or master player but bear in mind that chess lovers can be found at all levels of play. So do check out some of the other problems. You can probably find something more to your taste. Anyway, if standard chess isn't your thing, you might instead like SSCC.
