Thanks for the link, that was really revealing. So we can in fact say that there was no “bug" fixed in "AlphaGo 18" to fix the Problem of Game 4? It just went away due to more training?

So there is still training going on for AlphaGo. Why is it still on version 18 then? What does this imply? It’s still trained but not as much as before? How much training would justify a new version number? Or is a new version number only given for actual code changes? Does that mean besides training there is no actual software development going on anymore for AlphaGo? I thought there are a lot of ideas which couldn’t go into AlphaGo 18 due to the "code freeze” for the Lee Sedol match. Are these ideas are not going to be implemented?

It’s a pity that these questions didn’t came up at the USGC but I hope Aja can answer them here?
