Jeff Hawkins Brainstorms Ideas on Minicolumns

Jeff Hawkins • Founder

Jeff Hawkins brainstorms some ideas on minicolumns, in a continuation of a recent concept he presented in Numenta’s July 27, 2020 research meeting. In the previous meeting, he hypothesized that minicolumns represent movement vectors. In this research meeting, Jeff suggests a new mechanism for calculating reference frame transformation that ties into his minicolumn hypothesis. He suggests that the movement vectors of the minicolumns’ upper layers are allocentric, while that of the lower layers are ego-centric.
