Re: Wrong priorities

"presumably without it being made explicit"

With nothing more than pictures to go on providing explicit rules is needed. The training of the human visual system involves more than looking. I wonder what percentages of post-grad students are parents. If they were they might realise that when a child it prodding and biting objects or crawling round bumping into things it's doing more than reviewing the continual flow of images; it's correlating them with other senses and learning about solid objects. This is information that the AI isn't acquiring because it doesn't have the requisite data feeds nor the ability to interact with real objects.
