title Hierarchical Temporal Memory: Biological Mapping to Neocortex and Thalamus
description “Jeff Hawkins and Dileep George have proposed a theoretical framework for how the hierarchical structure of neocortex builds a model of the world. This theory, called Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) has been turned into a technology platform and is currently being applied to varied problems of pattern discovery and inference by their company Numenta. In this talk Hawkins will give a brief introduction to the technology and then give a detailed mapping between the concepts underlying HTM and the anatomy and physiology of neocortex and thalamus.” Download the software (v. 1.2 currently for Mac and Linux only) with free registration at Numenta’s site.
