This paper describes a cortical model for untangling sensorimotor from external sequences. It shows how a single neural mechanism can learn and recognize these two types of sequences: sequences where sensory inputs change due to external factors, and sequences where inputs change due to our own behavior (sensorimotor sequences).
This paper describes a mathematical model for quantifying the benefits and limitations of sparse representations in neurons and cortical networks.
An earlier version of the above submission, this paper applies our mathematical model of sparse representations to practical HTM systems.
14th IEEE ICMLA 2015 – This paper discusses how we should think about anomaly detection for streaming applications. It introduces a new open-source benchmark for detecting anomalies in real-time, time-series data.
Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) is a biologically inspired machine intelligence technology that mimics the architecture and processes of the neocortex. In this white paper we describe how to encode data as Sparse Distributed Representations (SDRs) for use in HTM systems. We explain several existing encoders, which are available through the open source project called NuPIC, and we discuss requirements for creating encoders for new types of data.
