Corticol columns as an information engine

My friend wrote an interesting paper on a theory on the similar design between a search engine and the Corticol column structure of the brain.

He compares distributed computing to the nature of corticol columns.(a single node - a single Corticol column) Can I hear your guys’s thoughts on his paper?


Is this theory consistent with the findings and theories that Numenta has made as well? I am interested in how we could test this.

I think the paper is very interesting. There certainly is consistency with our work, which your friend has seen as well (they cited two Numenta papers). Please invite them to join the forum for discussion.
