Numenta a company developing a new type of computer memory system modeled after the human neocortex has just been formed by the team that brought you Handspring and the Treo: Donna Dubinsky and Jeff Hawkins.
It describes a new theory of what intelligence is, a complementary theory of how the neocortex works, and how we can build intelligent machines.
And now they start to build them. A new approach to AI. Would love to know more about it. Anyone out there that can convince Donna, Jeff and or Sandra to present at a Future Salon? Or even better speak at the Accelerating Change Conference AC2005. After all this year's theme is Artificial Intelligence and Intelligence Amplification and it is in their backyard, at Stanford September 16-18.
Chris Scott said after the last Future Salon, your audience asks the best questions. Numenta should get out there too, to get to get some good questions asked and I know especially in AI we would shine.
So please if you know them, tell them about the Future Salon and AC2005 and ask them kindly to be part of the fun.
