Help understanding AI analysis

Hi everyone. When I click the AI move during an AI analysis after the game, I get presented with a full sequence of moves, as in the picture. Do I understand correctly that this is the moves that the AI would play for both sides?

Yeah, the variation you see is what AI considers most likely follow-up. The sequence should be taken with pinch of salt, whether its actually good variation depends on who’s winning. Even the best variation in losing situation is still a losing one >___>

And also, if you’re playing against amateur human opponent, the chances of that variation getting played is probably quite close to zero xD


Thanks for explaining!

not to mention katago will often change its mind about the specifics after more analysis

Staring at long main-line sequences from a superhuman bot is pretty useless for anyone weaker than mid-dan. It is better to interactively explore with an AI asking questions like “if my opponent plays here, where should I play?” within the first few moves deep.
