Rating moves

  • #1

    Got a question for the community here. Is there any software out there that takes a game, analyses it and attaches ratings/strength to individual moves. If anyone knows of such a tool or if anyone knows about literature that proposes an algorithm for implementation of the above idea, then please let me know.

    Cheers to all of you

    Very interesting question.

    I don't know if any software currently does such a thing ... though a classification system for "types of chess moves" with corr. rating range of people who would find them would be a fun thing to design.

    Something along the lines of 

    - Only move moves Rating : 0

    - Only move to avoid mate : 800

    - Trivial recaptures : 800

    - Seeing Single Motif (en prise) tactical shot : 1000

    - Preventing single motif tactical shot : 1200


    and so forth.

    It gets tougher to judge positionally good moves that indicate creativity/planning as engines can't assess things in an "expert system" like manner. You're better off with a massive database of collected test positions rated based on a wide sample of testers. (Novices to Masters).

    Some chess test books (like Khelmnitsky's Chess Rating Exam) did something like this in a minimized scale.
