Neural networks... You no longer need to know what you want, all you really need is 1 000 000 examples of what you do or do not want, and the computer figures it out on it's own.
@LukeAlmighty sadly technologies like neural networks doesn't resolve the problem. We trains them to resolve particular problems, but this technology today are to far far away of "understand" what is a complex bug? or for why its is a bug on certain program context?
But remember the tweet is a joke, don't take too seriously =)
I believe that the differenciation between our "deep understanding" and their "simple training" is an artificial one, based only on the believe in human "special" status.
Of corse neural networks are too shollow and lack cluster referencing system, that would enable them to jump between individual "concepts", but I still firmly believe, that our understanding is based on a same level of repeated training.
PS: I find it funny to take jokes dead seriously. It creates a disonance, that I consider halarious for some reason.
@LukeAlmighty I don't think that humans are "special", my opinion is based on actual state of art of IA/Neural Network/Machine learning.
Repeated training is actually one of many ways that a human used to understand or learn the reality or to solve problems but we are no limited only to it
