I wanted to share with you some HTM experiments I did for a class project this semester. In all reality, I whipped this entire thing up together in less than 2 weeks so its not super pretty or groundbreaking but the results are interesting.
Those who are comfortably familiar with HTM already can skip the background section.
This is the beginning of ongoing personal research I plan to continue: specifically the effort to design a biologically plausible encoder that encapsulates the functional properties of the human visual pathway i.e. everything that happens before any signal carrying visual information from the retina ever reaches cortex including the functionality of the lateral geniculate nucleus in the Thalamus and related structures.
