I think it depends what you mean by learn. You could train a monkey to load
an M6, st the shutter to 125 and the aperture to f16. Intelligence would
come in to the equation if the monkey could adapt that knowledge to
different lighting conditions and fulfill a brief. I think it is more about
adapting concepts.
