Unfortunately, current NNs do little more than solve toy problems.  In
the recent presentation by Hinton, he mentioned it took him 17 years
to figure out how to properly make something [boltzmann probabilistic
networks] that works significantly faster and better than backprop
networks. And what do his marvelous new networks solve? The
recognition of the numbers 1 to 9 in various distorted forms. 17 more
years down the tubes.
