Alex commented: I think you have some interesting ideas. I think the next couple of decades will really test whether increasing the size of neural nets will allow us to more simulate the brain. Some think that until we can build neural nets with trillions of connections like the brain, the we won't know for sure if scalability is the last barrier. That being said I tend to agree with you. I think the brain works in a super clever way and data alone will not equal intelligence. But I do think that a brain, however clever, does not learn and self organize without lots and lots of data to draw conclusions. One of the biggest open questions is how to transfer learning. The more tuned the brain is, it seems it needs less data to learn new things. What I think it's doing is extremely hierarchical, which is exactly what deep neural networks is about. ... read 4 more
