From ideas to theory to code at Numenta

Deep networks abstract out the underlying concept to the point where your statement is true.

Numenta is building models of the biological systems; these models are based on biological research. This skews the focus to the biology - where it should be producing results that can be verified by observation in the biology.

Nothing in DL models can be observed in the biology.

It is good to know this as it is totally opposite to DL, honestly I don’t even wanna compare each other in this particular aspect. It makes even more sense now that you have mentioned the verification through biology. I believe this is also what’s more important than the computational aspect at least for Numenta.
