Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

I think that a hybrid approach will be the next revolution.
Strengths of the alpha-beta together with strength of the NN searchers.
Perhaps the evaluation results of a position could be additional input into the net.
E.g., when a ply was finished, the estimates are examined, along with the other factors.
