Is there some problem with this phrase in such context:

Skills requiring years of lone practice could be now taught in several months.

So, let's say there is something that required long indiviudal practice, but now a cool robot has been launched and it can greatly help with the process. That's why i would like to use "lone" to emphasize what changed.

    Idiomatically, years of solo practice probably suits your context better. Unless it's the "cool robot" that's doing the learning, in which case unsupervised is now becoming the favoured term (for AI learning in particular). – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Feb 19 at 18:43
