I don't think that improvements in computer chess makes it more attractive. The 'better' they play the less understandable. Perhaps it's like watching a science fiction movie you don't understand at all. Computer Chess gets more and more dehumanized.
I think it will still be quite some time before they achieve the positional understanding of a 2800 chess champion.
Maybe they 'never' do for it's all tactics that count nowadays.
to evaluate a position as well as a 2800 chess champion, 99% of the time . maybe you 'just' need a 30-35 ply search which should happen eventually.
