Perceptrons vs. A.I.

“The success of deep learning systems has given us better machine perception. This is really useful. What it does well is matching or identifying patterns, very fast, for longer than you can reasonably expect people to do. It automates a small part of the glorious wonder of intuition. It also automates everything terrible about it, and adds brilliantly creative mistakes of its own. There is something wonderful about the idea of a machine that gets it completely, hopelessly wrong.”
