Children sense the world at a different granularity, attending to parts of the visual world we gloss over; to sounds we have dismissed as irrelevant. What is indiscernible to us is plain to them.
In a way, “experts” have a toddler’s ability to zoom in on the details, the very fabric of experience, that most of us glide adaptively by.
zoom dance ness
how to look at the world before knowing (or without thinking about) the name or function of everything that catches the eye. An infant treats objects with an *unprejudiced equivalence: the plastic truck is of no more intrinsic worth to the child than an empty box is, until the former is **called a toy and the latter is called garbage.
To the child, as to the artist, everything is relevant; little is unseen.

synesthesia — that curious crossing of the senses that causes one to “hear” colors, “smell” sounds, or perceive words and numbers in different hues, shapes, and textures.

First they said they needed data
about the children
to find out what they’re learning.
Then they said they needed data
about the children
to make sure they are learning.
Then the children only learnt
what could be turned into data.
Then the children became data.

We’ve built machines that are capable of incredible feats. But Elizabeth Spelke, a cognitive psychologist at Harvard, has spent her career testing the world’s most sophisticated learning system—the mind of a baby. https://t.co/JyN1kNdzxp

It’s Called ai.. but what is intelligence?.. We’ve built machines that are capable of incredible feats, yet still they have nothing on a baby.
a puzzle at the heart of modern artificial intelligence: We’re not sure what to aim for.
“Humans don’t start out with skills; they start out with a broad ability to acquire new skills,” he says. “What a strong human chess player is demonstrating isn’t the ability to play chess per se, but the potential to acquire any task of a similar difficulty. That’s a very different capability.”
humans are born with an innate ability to quickly learn certain things, like what a smile means or what happens when you drop something. It also suggests we learn a lot from each other.
