I see teaching a program to play the same as deposing exact logic to go after.

You cannot depose exact logic that you do not know about.

One example:
You cannot teach program that KRB vs KRP is usually a draw and that the
evaluation should be close to 0.00 if you do not know it and your evaluation by
only counting material may be +2 and you cannot see the 0 by search because you
cannot search deep enough.
