These models do not posit strong domain specific learning biases of the kind encoded in UG. Clark and Lappin , offer detailed discussions of IIL and alternative learning models. On the basis of these limitations they conclude that neural networks in general are incapable of acquiring human level knowledge in most AI applications, particularly in natural language processing.
Once again, the argument is unsound. While simple first generation neural networks are indeed very restricted in their learning performance, multi-level DNNs with more complex architectures have achieved striking results across a wide range of tasks, including several areas of NLP.
It is clear that work on DNN models for the learning and representation of natural language is still in its infancy. While considerable progress has been made, these models do not yet converge on human linguistic capacities in most cognitively interesting tasks. It is reasonable to expect that entirely new types of machine learning architectures will replace current DNNs, and that these may well yield significant gains in modelling ability across a range of linguistic applications.
More generally, Hinton is calling for a re-evaluation of gradient descent and back propagation, the work horse of neural network learning over decades. At this point we have no way of estimating the possibility of machine learning methods approaching human level knowledge of the properties of natural language. The question of whether they can do so remains entirely open.
It is certainly proving to be a fruitful area of research. ML models are precisely specified and implemented. They make clear predictions, and their performance can be evaluated in quantitative terms against chosen baselines and alternative models.
By designing and testing such models we obtain insight into which learning procedures can achieve relative success for a particular set of tasks corresponding to a given human cognitive ability. We appreciate the fact that they take seriously the issues that we address there, which we see as a very encouraging development in linguistics. In order to move the discussion forward it is necessary for advocates of a categorial grammar, derived from a strong bias UG view of language acquisition, to produce a genuine computational model that provides a non-trivial classifier for acceptability.
It is only when such a system is available that we can compare it to the ML models that we and other computational linguists are using to acquire and represent linguistic knowledge.
