If that is true and if neural networks can can now answer questions about
what they just read better than a human can (and they can) then I don't
know what "comprehension" means,
​but ​
whatever it means it can't be anything very important.

​If that is true then being "​
dead behind the eyes
​" is an advantage because it makes you more intelligent. Regardless of how
you want to spin it the fact remains that as of today a computer can answer
questions about what it just read better than a human can, and
the implications of that fact are momentous.
