I was playing against godroid on my phone, it was my first "serious" game after I just read several tactis and background and did some "dirty" games without thinking a lot against the phone. I won the game by 20:14.5 with 2 stones handicap and 5.5 komi and AI strength level 1.

Now I wonder, what kyu represents AI strength 1? Somewhere I read, that

Quote:
GNU Go is an AI engine that plays Go at about 8 to 12 kyu strength.


so that means, level 1 strength is 12kyu? That would make me kyu14 if I can steadily win that configuration (and of course would to have test this against human players as well), but I dont really think that is true because I just started.
So, can you even compare the gnugo AI that way to know in what range of kyu you are?

It's hard to make good comparisons with human levels for bots using traditional methods like that. First, they tend to make weird mistakes compared to humans, and so beating them at a level doesn't necessarily translate to a specific human level, but more of a range. Second, their strength is often based on their computation resources, and so depending on your phone and whatever else is running on it, it may be higher or lower.

If you're curious about your specific level, just play 5-10 games on KGS or OGS or something and see where you stand.

The bot GnuGo2 is 11k on KGS (a few years ago, GnuGo was 12k, so KGS ranks may have become weaker). I don't know how this compares to AI Level 1 on GoDroid.
