It’s undeniable that machine learning has made enormous progress over the past few years: from amazing artificial intelligence accomplishments like defeating a top ranking player at the ancient and complex game of Go to simple everyday uses like auto-tagging personal photo collections. At the core of the most advanced algorithms used to achieve these feats are neural networks – technology’s way of mimicking the human brain. But just how smart are these neural networks? Since my not-quite-two-year-old son started paying attention to the world beyond his mom and started learning, I have been at awe by the way his brain learns by making associations in comparison, I wonder how much further does machine learning has to go.
