How is a unique room being represented and associated with locations?

#1

An accurate location of space is represented by the concatenation of all the grid cell modules.
How is this representation being associated to a unique room?

This is a bit misleading. I was trying to show how GCMs could be used to represent space with SDRs, but that is not exactly how we use them in HTM theory. I suggest you read the paper: Locations in the Neocortex: A Theory of Sensorimotor Object Recognition Using Cortical Grid Cells.

I invite you to think about ratslam and how that concept could be coded with the collection of different types of cells that are found in the HC/EC complex.

Also - and this is a bit of a stretch - what would happen if the information underwent a transformation before coding like I am describing here:
