This is a fascinating idea.  It sure would be great if the idea could be
developed in a serious thread here.

There are "tons" of complicated items of human knowledge.  Much is captured in
large databases of master games.

Top GMs have much in their heads.  Wouldn't it be nice if a large number of top
GMs, or even "ordinary" GMs, could work with the chess software experts to find
ways to impart this knowledge in some useful way?

Obviously, this is already going on, but not at the scale I'm talking about.

What would those software tools look like?

How, for example, to obtain the information from large databases and put into a
form useful to the software developers?

What would *automated* software to do that look like?
