Evergreen tweet

We used to compare the number of transistors on a chip to the number of neurons in the brain. Now we use the total number of filters in the Conv2D layers of a DL model for that comparison. It makes as much sense (which is none).

Btw GPUs have 10-15B transistors these days, growing by 10x in ~5 years. So GPUs should be brain-scale in less than 5 years
