Toddlers are data miners


What was first ?

When I read : “A ground-breaking new theory postulates that young children are able to learn large groups of words rapidly by data-mining” on Slashdot I start to wonder : did we not invent the datamining algorithms by copying the way an animal brain works (e.g. artificial neural networks) ? So why be surprised that if you copy something the original looks like the copy ?
