I’m very excited avout the latest developments and research around sensorimotor integration.
We have discussed with a friend about the use of HTM Theory / Nupic for anomaly detection and I was wondering if sensorimotor integration can also be used in such cases meaning is SMI just that (sensor/motor) or is it a more generic feature?
HTM Neuron, SDRs are very generic terms but SMI is specific to objects/locations, or is it? I suppose “context” is an abstraction of the feature which is higher level ? I think Jeff spoke about this somewhere.
The term SMI makes a lot of sense for basic human intelligent behavior but aren’t those features of the cortex used for higher/abstract context (or action) integration?
The way I see it the neuron is closest to neuroscience but if higher level features can be abstracted away from neuroscience, like is the case with SDRs compared to SMI, it would be better for HTM Theory so it’s more easily understood and utilized.
This could be a question for Nupic and handled in the actual implementation but I think HTM Theory needs to stay as generic as possible.
I’ve been looking into HTM Theory on a very high level so I could be missing a lot of context in which case even a quick pointer to more information would be enough of an answer.
