Numenta released a major new theory for intelligence and cortical computation in October 2018. Read about the theory and the resources available to learn more, from the scientific paper to the companion piece written in layperson’s terms. The Numenta research team will be at Neuroscience 2018, hosted by SfN, to discuss the new theory and additional research.
Numenta co-founder Jeff Hawkins will present new research at two upcoming events: the Human Brain Project Summit Open Day in Maastricht, Netherlands and the Johns Hopkins University APL Colloquium in Baltimore, Maryland. These presentations mark the first public presentations of Numenta’s framework for understanding how the neocortex works. The framework ties together major new pieces of our work, and suggests a new way of thinking about intelligence.
We’re excited to announce the launch of a new podcast series called Numenta On Intelligence. This month also kicks off a steady stream of events for us, starting with CNS 2018. For those who have followed our work’s applicability to anomaly detection, we have a new blog on running an algorithm from an AWS post on NAB.
We have a new commercial licensee, Intelletic Corporation, a financial startup developing an AI platform for autonomous trading. Jeff Hawkins spoke at the Computational Theories of the Brain Workshop in UC Berkeley. Research Engineer Marcus Lewis presented a poster at the Grid Cell Meeting at UCL.
Jeff Hawkins is speaking at a Berkeley brain theories workshop, called Computational Theories of the Brain, this April. He also co-wrote a new article with Christy Maver on the Thousand Brains Model of Intelligence. Similarly, Cortical.io published a new piece on why intelligent machines must be versatile.
