May 2015 Newsletter: Cortical.io Relationship
May 14, 2015
Dear Numenta newsletter subscriber:
I am excited to let you know that we recently announced a relationship with Cortical.io, an innovative company based in Austria that is working on the next generation of natural language processing: language intelligence. Cortical.io has created a technology that can translate text into sparse distributed representations, called Semantic Folding. By using Cortical.io’s Semantic Folding technology in combination with HTM, we plan to tackle problems in language that have frustrated computer scientists for many years. To learn more about Cortical.io, you can read our press release, view the Cortical.io website, or try the Cortical.io API at AWS.
I also wanted to draw your attention to a new paper about HTM written by Sebastian Billaudelle, with Subutai Ahmad, our VP Research. As part of the European based Human Brain Project, Sebastian spent several months at Numenta porting HTM to the Heidelberg Neuromorphic Computing Platform, with positive results. Sebastian implemented HTM using spiking neurons, which are complex models often used by neuroscientists to reproduce actual biophysical characteristics of neurons. You can read about his work here.
We have several great projects under development and look forward to sharing more with you over the coming months.
