What do people think about altering gnubg play depending on some kind of
"personality" setting?

I'm thinking of a simple layer after normal evaluation that adjusts
equities based on simple position characteristics.  All I can think of
immediately is number of blots and number of hit chequers.
So for example if gnubg was set to "aggressive" it would favour hitting
moves, or if it was set to "safe" it would favour not leaving blots.

I think the idea might be a bit simplistic and ideally you would
re-train/adjust the neural nets for different playing styles.  All I'm
thinking of here is adjusting the equities by a set amount.

On a similar theme you could make gnubg more likely to take or drop
depending on gammon rates.

Any thoughts?


Ps. I think I saw this in a comment about the
upcoming zbot backgammon program.
