On Intelligence (Book)

Jeff Hawkins & Sandra BlakesleeJeff Hawkins & Sandra BlakesleeCo-Founder & Co-Author

The core concepts in Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) theory were first described in this book titled On Intelligence, which was written by Jeff Hawkins with the help of Sandra Blakeslee. This book still provides background and a great introduction to our theory, though many of the ideas in chapter 6 (“How the Cortex Works”) are currently being revised.

Note: This book refers to the HTM learning algorithm as the Cortical Learning Algorithm, or CLA; we have recently decided to sunset this term as our technology has evolved.
