Black Marlin [1]

Black Marlin,
an UCI compatible open source chess engine by Doruk Sekercioglu, written in Rust, licensed under the GPL v3.0, and first released in October 2021 [2]. Bitboard based move generation is done using the Rust cozy_chess library by Analog Hors. The engine features NNUE evaluation, and comes with Marlinflow, a Neural Network training repository for the engine [3]. For optimal NNUE inference on various X86-64 systems using their most advanced SIMD instruction sets, Windows binaries are available supporting SSSE3, SSE4.2, AVX2 and AVX-512. Black Marlin 4.0, released in January 2022, improved due to a larger network, more aggressive pruning and better move ordering [4].
