I'm Stephen, a software engineer and in my spare time a roboticist and student of machine learning. I partially read On Intelligence a few years ago having followed Jeff's work in this area for some time. I'm going to read the book again, this time in full! I'm a beginner when it comes to HTM and NuPIC etc. and I'm really interested in learning more and tapping into the potential of NuPIC for my own projects. I'm currently in the NY area but I plan on heading back toward the Pacific Northwest starting this summer. I'm really glad to finally be here!
