    Posted By: AngusI have noticed that whenever I make a purchase over the interwebs I am subsequently deluged with advertisements for the very same thing that I have already bought. This does not strike me as intelligent.


    Advertising in general is not the industry/gewerbe(haha) to attract the brightest minds. Since their jobs are so boring they employ their creativity for mobbing.

    Nobody understands deep learning. Otherwise we'd just program the weights for the task at hand and we'd be done.

    A real neuron is a lot more complex than an artificial one.

    I think the real complexity is in the connections between neurons.

    The real complexity is in the tendency of space time to clump into stuff that is somehow different from other stuff

    Deep. Headed for the Moletrap Dialect.

    Thanks. I’ve just had a very strong Maccas hot chocolate and it’s brought on a bout of profundity.

    There there. Just have a little lie down and it will probably subside. Although I'm not sure if the subsidence of a bout of profundity is a good idea, now that I think on it...

    I’m not sure that buying anything from Maccas is a good idea either (but I did win a free McChicken when I peeled the sticker off the side of the take-away cup-Oh happy days!)

    I wish you the joy of the free McChicken

    I like that, but I also don't.

    I've always thought that Reality is Irrelevent would be a better name for the Two Minute Papers channel.

    Replacing the backpropagation algorithm with something more physically realisable in an organic system has long been one of the goals of neural network research. Several years ago I posted here how impressed I was with the work of Blake Richards and the YT vids of his lectures on possible learning mechanisms for the pyramidal neuron. It's good to see that coming of age here.

    Rivalling the efficiency of brain learning with synthetic systems is not a problem that we can expect to solve overnight. Just to mention two aspects: the one-shot learning trick, and the tiny power consumption per node trick.
