Unforced errors

Even the highest ranked Tron agents seem to make an occasional mistake, crashing against themselves in a silly manner for example (fig. 3.37). People do the same, even the best player makes an occasional mistake.

Figure 3.37: Error. R. 5470006, one of the all-time best Tron agents, loses here in a stupid manner, crashing itself. Even though this is a highly evolved agent capable of winning against most human opponents, it still makes occasional mistakes (black=agent, gray=human).
