Why Machine Learning?

A good friend of mine recommended me to read the book The Craft Of Research. It is a fantastic book and it shows how to go about conducting a research and present it in a structured way so that your readers can understand and appreciate your research. I highly recommend this book for almost anyone who puts words-to-paper or fingers-on-keyboard. Click here to read the rest.

  1. According to The Chinese Room Argument: Can we be sure that the same process is not taking place in our brains? Maybe when the idea of memristor will be materialised, and our comprehension of the way brain works improves, it will be obvious that we, humans are also just the set of rules. Rules coded in our genome, in our memories and so on. We should take into account that there are not a lot of contemporary deep learning algorithms that are guided for 18+ years as humans, so comparing those two objects is like comparing apples to oranges.

    • Thanks for your comments.

      You are absolutely right, a lot of things I learnt in school happened like the Chinese room argument. We have a lot of biases and books like Thinking Fast and Slow explains it really well.

      The point I was trying to make with Chinese room argument is Turing Test focuses more on input/output and doesn’t give much importance to the process.

      The amount of progress that we have made in AI over the last 10 years is phenomenal. And chances of achieving AGI seems likely.


      • Thanks for your response Jana. I’m looking forward to the following articles. It’s a great topic. I’ve recently enrolled to some courses on Udemy and Coursera to catch up on ML.

    • Thanks Eric. Nice to see your comments and it reminded me of our good old Team$ days.
