Leading the New Era of Machine Intelligence

Numenta is tackling one of the most important scientific challenges of all time: reverse engineering the neocortex. Studying how the brain works helps us understand the principles of intelligence and build machines that work on the same principles. We believe that understanding how the neocortex works is the fastest path to machine intelligence, and creating intelligent machines is important for the continued success of humankind.

We are at the beginning of a thrilling new era of computing that will unfold over the coming decades, and we invite you to learn about how our approach is helping to advance the state of brain theory and machine intelligence.
