First of all, thanks for the fascinating work about understanding our brain. This inspires me and others. Great job.
Before getting to know HTM, I have been playing and publishing papers about evolutionary programming, you know, individuals that represent solutions to a problem, fitness is obtained, generations, … at the end, a methodology to search in the solution space, an optimisation algorithm.
I am wondering if you know about any work done on optimising HTM models by using evolutionary/genetic algorithms.
I heard @jhawkins in a talk mentioning evolution when talking about HTM models in Grok. Is any of these techniques used?
Said that, thanks again for your time and work.
