An excellent conversation.
I certainly hope Jeff enjoys doing these, as much as we enjoy watching them.
Please let him know it is very much appreciated. I'm just as much enamored with
this subject (Theoretical framework of brain function) as he is!
Been following Jeff's talks & interviews for quite some time now. Since my first
encounter with the Berkeley 2012 interview: "On Intelligence with Jeff Hawkins -Conversations with History"
...and so many lectures, talks, and presentations he's done along the way.
(TED, GoogleTalks, Berkeley-talks, Neuro-conferences, etc.)
So I share his passion, for this area of Neuroscience.
With all of the progress made up to this point, I'm fully on-board with Numenta's mission, and am
proud (and grateful to participate) to share the vision of developing true Neo-cortical AI.
As I'm studying the published papers, and working towards making contributions to the work myself,
I think we’re still only in the earliest stages of locking down our understanding, and then translating
this knowledge to the information-processing environment. What you have now (i.e. Nupic) is foundational, and will be refined & augmented. Then, I expect , will be ready to scale, to do amazing things in AI.
On a lighter note ... @rhyolight:
You're certainly becoming quite the production talent in video presentations.
(a.k.a. HTM-School ) Hasn't gone unnoticed.
I see you're the musical enthusiast, so you I can appreciate the mixing you do with your video work ....
See if this song sticks in your head like me, after having watched this presentation ......
( Sounds best, played at ~ 0.9 speed -- really! )
