"unless we've missed something fundamental about how the brain works"

But we don't know how the brain works. I think you extrapolate too far. Just because a machine learning technique is inspired by our squishy connectome it does not mean it's anything like it.

I'm willing to bet there are isomorphisms of dynamics between an organic brain and a neural net programmed on silicon but as far as I know, there are still none found - or at least none are named specifically (please correct me).
