Our first skunkworks project was the development of Eman's Experience book. For those not aware, this is a database where lots of information is stored about positions: Analysis score, Games Percentages, ongoing evaluation changes and much more. This database is then used by the engine (which is an aggressive Stockfish derivative) to enhance its own search.
Over the last few months a small group of us have quietly worked on this and now have a database of 15million moves, covering 13.5 million positions. Other people have larger databases, but the difference is that ours are all at a depth which aids the engine is correspondence analysis.
If you want to gain access to this you need to be a premium or international member and then would be able to join the group, although anyone wanting to needs to contribute to the project, which is fairly simple.
More on the next skunkworks project soon!
