Hi Chandan - Have you selected a location yet? We could possibly do it at H2O.

Thats a good idea. We have one location proposed and available currently in PaloAlto.
Will keep that in mind.


Would this be a good place to show up and get some help getting HTM building on my machine?


Total noob

Start here and ask questions on #nupic if you have any.

Hi Chandan, Thanks for setting this up. I’d like to present a Lightning Talk on my recent work on HTM engine. We can call it “Two Extensions to HTM Engine.” I can give an overview of HTM engine, describe the changes, and demo how to use them.



i’m in the bay area - and I’m interested in HTMs but I’m a complete beginner (my background is very traditional ML) is this something worth going to or will the conversations be over my head?

Also, I’ll be live-streaming this event on YouTube tonight. I’ll start a test-stream around 6PM Pacific, then the actual talks start at 7PM, which will be a 2nd stream.

This is the first time I’ve done this kind of live-stream, so bear with me please.
