Here, we apparently have all “research papers” produced by Numenta members/researchers. Some of these papers, e.g. A Theory of How Columns in the Neocortex Enable Learning the Structure of the World (by J. Hawkins, S. Ahmad & Yuwei Cui), have been published in journals (in the case of this specific paper, it’s Frontiers in Neural Circuits). However, other papers produced by Numenta (e.g. Untangling Sequences: Behavior vs. External Causes) have not yet been published in or accepted by any journal, which may induce people to think that those papers are not “serious enough” or scientific.
I didn’t read any of these papers. But why is Numenta sharing papers without even publishing them in renowned and respected scientific journals?
Isn’t Numenta just risking to, in my opinion, rightly, being criticized by the scientific community because of this unscientific approach?
Are those papers which have not been published in any respected scientific journal “unscientific” indeed? Why or why not?
How can we trust Numenta research if it’s not been reviewed by any other expert in the field of neuroscience or computational neuroscience (or, in general, related fields)?
Please, answer only if you’re a Numenta member.
