Understanding the brain is one of science’s most important problems, and while many people believe it’s not solvable, researchers at Numenta disagree. Numenta is on a mission to reverse-engineer the brain and establish a path to machine intelligence. Watch this two minute video to see why the brain is not only a remarkable organ but the key to understanding intelligence.
In Jeff Hawkins’ MIT talk, he describes a theory that sensory regions of the neocortex process two inputs. One input is the well-known sensory data, and he proposes that the other is a representation of allocentric location. He discusses material from our March 2016 neuron paper and our October 2017 columns paper.
In this ODSC West talk, Matt Taylor discusses the biological path toward strong AI and why today’s AI won’t lead to truly intelligent machines. ODSC is a data science conference that fosters the exchange of the latest advances in AI and data science and encourages the growth of open source applications.
This video accompanies the paper titled “A Theory of How Columns in the Neocortex Enable Learning the Structure of the World” by Jeff Hawkins, Subutai Ahmad, and Yuwei Cui.
At Strange Loop, Numenta’s Matt Taylor gives a talk titled The Biological Path Toward Strong AI where he discusses details about our HTM technology, such as SDRs, Spatial Pooling, Temporal Memory, and Sensorimotor Inference.
