Numenta Inc., formed by Jeff Hawkins, Donna Dubinsky and Dileep George has begun researching the practical application of Jeff's theories. The Numenta technology, called Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM), is based on a theory of the neocortex described in On Intelligence.
Welcome to OnIntelligence.org, the companion Web site for the book On Intelligence. If you liked the book, want to learn more about the book or want to discuss the book with others, this web resource is for you.
The first set of links provides information for people who have not yet read the book or have a general interest. It contains:
- Bios of the authors
- Reviews of the book, what people are saying
- The table of contents
- An excerpt from the book, "The Prologue"
- A list of venues and dates where the authors will be speaking
The second set of links contains resources for people who have read the book and want to learn more about the theory. Here you will find:
- An online discussion forum
- Additional resources including an expanded bibliography and source code for simulations
- Q&A section for asking the authors questions
- A form for emailing the authors
I hope this Web site becomes a communications tool for people interested in building intelligent memory systems and contributing to the theory presented in the book. Engineers, computer scientists and neuroscientists interested in formalizing the concepts in the book, implementing the algorithms in software and testing the theory biologically should find material of interest here. Please use the discussion forum for posting questions and engaging others with similar interests.
OnIntelligence.org is a work in progress. We hope to grow and improve the site as we learn what is useful and what isn't, and new material will be added on an ongoing basis. We are happy to hear your suggestions on how to improve this resource. Thank you.
