do we need something else, or just more?
Though deep learning has had some promising results, there are still some things that it simply doesn’t do well at. There are other algorithms that do as well or better at certain tasks. On the other hand, we’ve only been able to implement comparatively small neural networks. Perhaps, if we could simulate larger networks, deep learning or an algorithm like it could do what it currently cannot.
Here’s a link to a paper by Gary Marcus, providing a critical review of deep learning and suggesting that it may have to be combined with other approaches to create a general intelligence.
