Resurgence in Neural Networks -
in 2002 Geoffrey Hinton (et al.) discovered a technique called called Contrastive Divergence that could quickly model inputs in a Restricted Boltzmann Machine. A Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM for short) is a two layer network of interconnected nodes (a bipartite graph). Unlike the feed forward network above these connections are two way.

Because as human beings we store digits in a memory loop that runs for about two seconds. We most easily memorize whatever we can say or read within that two second span. And Chinese speakers get that list of numbers—4,8,5,3,9,7,6—right every time because—unlike English speakers—their language allows them to fit all those seven numbers into two seconds.

Why Do Some People Learn Faster? | Wired Science |
The problem with praising kids for their innate intelligence — the “smart” compliment — is that it misrepresents the psychological reality of education. It encourages kids to avoid the most useful kind of learning activities, which is when we learn from our mistakes. Because unless we experience the unpleasant symptoms of being wrong — that surge of Pe activity a few hundred milliseconds after the error, directing our attention to the very thing we’d like to ignore — the mind will never revise its models. We’ll keep on making the same mistakes, forsaking self-improvement for the sake of self-confidence. Samuel Beckett had the right attitude: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
