alexmagnus: To teach a neural network you don't need to give it anything, no formula, nothing. In some games not even the rules (in chess it's possible too, but who wants to waste resources on it learning the rules by itself?). The only things it needs is kind of "reward" for each win and ...

alexmagnus: Anand's six-move loss to Zapata was not much better, and Anand was already a GM by that time. No fraud (in Anand case just a bad reading of Informator... Where a prearranged draw had the blunder - also between GMs!)

alexmagnus: The "bad" Ivanchuk is actually above his rating now). Which once more illustrates that his previous performance was not that bad - it cannot be too bad if it can be fixed literally with two games.
