What reading the alphabet can teach you about AI
If you start to read the alphabet out load for your self you will realize two things:
1) Un-knowingly you have learnt it in sequences and probably grouped the letters; ABC – DEF – GHIJKL -MNOPQ and so on.
2) How hard it is to read the alphabet backwards. If you want to do it then you have to learn it that way around. The brain have learnt it in a special order
Ray explain how the historic development of the human brain and how it learn things can tell us things about AI and the future development of AI.
