Video: The Hard Unsolved Problems in HTM Theory (1:00:00)

To help you learn about our theory and technology, we have organized educational content below. It is designed for anyone who wants to learn about HTM cortical theory and its applications for machine intelligence.

  1. Research PapersHere you’ll find a collection of recent Numenta Research papers. Some of them are currently under review at journals/conferences but we have made all manuscripts available on arXiv, an online repository of self-archived scientific papers.
  2. Biological and Machine Intelligence (BAMI)This living book (Biological And Machine Intelligence) documents our Hierarchical Temporal Memory framework for both biological and machine intelligence.
  3. HTM SchoolThis YouTube series is designed to educate the general public about Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM). Each 10-15 minute episode dives into a particular topic of HTM theory.
