I found this hour long interview with James Douma very interesting in part because some of my co-workers were trying to figure out how to teach computers to recognize images back in 1985. I was certain that neural networks were the answer if we ever figured out how neural networks might be built and operated but it never went past being a curiosity for me. Now that they actually exist it's fun to find out how they actually are made to work.

A good alternative title might be: "How to use brute force to solve problems that cannot be solved by brute force." The brain solves the visual problem by brute force, billions of neurons assigned to the job.
