How cool would it be to have the world's most powerful computer analyzing games played in a match between the world's two strongest human players? Has it happened yet and is the analysis available?

Yes, there is: AlphaZero on Carlsen-Caruana Games 1-8 and AlphaZero on Carlsen-Caruana Games 9-12. We don't have seen the PGNs with their concrete lines so far.

I'm not sure how helpful that is. Just one minute thinking time … seems to be a bit short. Some deeper calculation might be more valuable.

    One minute thinking time was also the rule for the match against Stockfish. Of course it is not really enough for Stockfish but since AlphaZero works in a completely different way using massive parallelism and look-ups it is fine for AlphaZero. – Brian Towers Nov 25 '18 at 0:32
  • Having seen the video and analysis, even with one minute alpha finds some quite unusual yet effective plans. Quite good insight on creative plans. – Isac Nov 26 '18 at 14:15
