Some years ago I studied deep learning. There were good books, several frameworks and plenty of trained neural networks for free. In other words, there is interest that people learn to use deep learning.
On the other hand, HTM which seems much powerful than deep learning doesn’t have an updated framework with proper working examples.
Besides, the Corticol.io’s white paper is a joke. It’s just an ad.
So, imho, numenta is interested in creating companies that use HTM but doesn’t want peopple and researchers to use it.
I was very excited about HTM but now I am very disappointed with the lack of resources to develop good AI tools.
