Hi Stefan,

You are right. This kind of network certainly isn’t “self aware.” Network like these are best thought of as being akin to sensory systems (like the human visual system). They make sense of high-dimensional inputs, and don’t do much else. In themselves they aren’t the solution to AI, but what they do, they do well, and it is pretty clear they are going to play a part in whatever the solution ends up being one day.

PhD. Interests include Deep (Reinforcement) Learning, Computational Neuroscience, and Phenomenology.
