Our brains use much less power than current GPUs do, how can we create more effective hardware and training and inference on the edge?

How do you define intelligence? For me it is the ability to learn, to learn and adapt. For instance, the Boston Dynamics robot can do impressive dancing, backflips, open the door, but it is pre-programmed to do exactly that.
