One philosophical question which comes to my mind when I think about machine learning is whether a robot should be curious or not?

Not sure if it is mentioned in the book or not.

When children learn they always try to use their skills on everything outside them and see how it goes - they try to beat up the father or eat a spoon etc.

Should the robot have the same ability thus learning faster?

There are some approaches to curious learning that run under the name "Intrinsic Motivation" or "Intrinsically Motivated Reinforcement Learning" However, it seems to be difficult to find a measure for what is interesting in a continuous world with many sensory stimuli at basically all time. So there we have a somewhat philosophical question again: "What is interesting?" or "Which features attract the curiousity of children?"

When we talked about machine learning, I didn't know what would apparent in brain by others, but I am always imagined a engine was chewing.
Anyway, It's a suggestive and practicability field and I'm a beginner of this field.
