"Neural Networks are just one representation of data."
an (artificial) neural network is a predictor which learns from data which has been around for some time. the grandparent meant the particular breakthrough that enable deep learning (which is the training neural networks with a lot of layers between input and output) was to figure out how to learn quickly. Previously, training these deep networks would take a lot of time to converge or not converge at all.
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Benchmarked and Reviewed
I still get random X window system crashes on lucid lynx. I remember them being related to intel driver(i915). And I didn't have them on previous releases.

When you have lots of data, you don't have to build any "expert" knowledge into a learner.
