Infants learn through interacting with the real world, which appears to be training various intuitive engines or simulators inside the brain without the need for massive training data.
We need a much better understanding of humans, both in respect to intelligence as well as intuition. This clearly stipulates that neuroscience and behavioral science are required to advance AI further.MORE COMMENT
