Learning how to learn: Toddlers vs. neural networks

Learning how to learn: Toddlers vs. neural networks

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 artificial neural networks, which are 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; by comparison, I wonder how much further machine learning has to go.
