Open Peer Commentary Quartz & Sejnowski: Cognitive development
Dynamical learning algorithms for neural networks and neural constructivism
Enrico Blanzieri a1 a1 Centro di Scienza Cognitiva, Universita' di Torino, 10123 Turin, Italy
The present commentary addresses the Quartz & Sejnowski
(Q&S) target article from the point of view of the dynamical
learning algorithm for neural networks. These techniques implicitly
adopt Q&S's neural constructivist paradigm. Their approach
hence receives support from the biological and psychological evidence.
Limitations of constructive learning for neural networks are discussed
with an emphasis on grammar learning.
