Today I asked few random questions to my son
Like what is love? He answered a hug and hugged me.
What is sky? He replied “Outer space & sparkling stars” and then started describing rocket, I didn’t ask what space is though.
What is moon? Cloud is moon I followed up how can is it so!! He replied by showing a moon behind the cloud.
What is a meal? My son readily answered meal is MacDonald, in fact we usually order a “Happy meal” for my son almost always if we go to a macD.
In fact he has a very different answer for lunch- for him it is fish & rice usually those are the common items in his lunch.
What is a movie-a giant TV and popcorn.
What is a cartoon – he said cartoon is charging and explained “you charge the tab” he usually watch cartoon in a tab and in fact it drains too fast.
What is a video game- TV with more controls.
And the lists go on… all the responses are based on his own experiences and learnings so far, he has just entered in his 4th year of his existence.
He is able to identify objects in any picture sometime do mix-up few shapes with certain known shapes but the number of wrong identification is getting less by day.
I don’t see a complicated logic/algorithm in the process of his learning things or conceptualizing and associating context to objects and nouns, he is more expressive & comfortable with his body language than making longer sentences to define things.
I can see a very prominent pattern in his way of learning how he is making a pronunciation perfect, I am almost certain that if we would have counted the number of times he has said a specific word like “water” from the very first day he started asking for it or the thread of interactions,
that would have provided a very understandable meaning full space time data of how he has learnt to say “water”, in fact where he has learnt to say “bye” in his house at the main gate for sure, how many times he heard/watched us to say that word before he associated that word with a specific action?
His sentences are simple in most cases combinations of simple nouns and verbs in few cases he has just started using few adjectives “very”-good, “soo” big.
In fact it’s really interesting to watch how he is making sense to a word which is really beyond his age grade like what is “India” I asked once, his grandparents were going back to India and I asked what he gonna do next? he suggested to bring new “Dadu/Dida-grandmother/father” from India so I asked what is India? And he promptly replied “it’s a Home” I think you can connect the dots how he came into that conclusion.
These are the few facts I understood – I do not have very specific explanation to all of my understanding!!!
- Learning is very data intense mechanical process not very complex algorithm involves at least for a kid.
- I am not talking about speech recognition
- Voice modulation
- Understanding of sentence or grammar those are definitely a field of complex algorithm
- Understanding or learning is not realization, machine can learn but can’t realize. AI is not the answer to true realization learning, rapid learning, indexing processing and fast retrieval is resource intensive operations which can be made available to machines.
Human being can realize at certain point that there is something beyond all our learnings.
For machines there will be no realization.
- If you want to make the learning process quick it require complex algorithm but that would always fails on the other hand feeding data & more data associating context from its own experience make a learning perfect and definitely it require time advance science can reduce the learning time to a minimum by providing more resource with efficient throughput.
- No algorithm can make a general shape of a cat; its only millions of cats pictures can make it perfect same for any shape or object identifications.
- Memory bit is multidimensional array which store time, space and bits of information of all the sensory receptors very efficient way, the way human brain index, normalize data, huge data that will still remain a challenge for at least next 10 years and eventually big data will have an answer.
- More memory bits more correct & meaningful sentences.
