Still brainstorming about topics to discuss, but I will go over work I’ve been doing and some upcoming plans with Jeff.
HTM Hackers’ Hangout is a live monthly Google Hangout held for our online community. Anyone is free to join in the discussion either by connecting directly to the hangout or commenting on the YouTube video during the live stream.
If you have something specific you’d like to discuss, or if you just want to learn more about the HTM Community, please join HTM Forum at https://discourse.numenta.org. We have active discussions about HTM theory, research, implementations, and applications.
Yes it was very worth the effort! I appreciate the link, needed that.
A traveling wave involving the entire neocortex takes me back to the very basics of social cell behavior. There is a wave pattern for moving food through the colony, along with other cell to cell signals that allow each to sense what’s going on somewhere else. In case anyone missed this one:
HTM theory accounts for some of this by having many predictive units where each one can like Jeff would say look around through a straw to see the wider picture. One way to do that is move the picture instead of the straw. It’s then predicted that we see waves something like this, in case anyone missed these:
The hippocampi seems to be where the cortical wave is in a way absorbed. It’s possible that by then that internal map/thought was mostly completed by short cuts direct from the cortical surface to inner structures, but I’m now speculating. In either case as this applies to my model there are two complete pictures of what is being sensed where the other kinda swirls around while the hippocampus related areas pieces that together into a stable mental vector map/image of what we sense in the environment or imagine ourselves to be navigating.
