#59 - Jeff Hawkins (Thousand Brains Theory)

Machine Learning Street Talk

The ultimate goal of neuroscience is to learn how the human brain gives rise to human intelligence and what it means to be intelligent. Understanding how the brain works is considered one of humanity’s greatest challenges.  Jeff Hawkins thinks that the reality we perceive is a kind of simulation, a hallucination, a confabulation. He thinks that our brains are a model reality based on thousands of information streams originating from the sensors in our body.  Critically - Hawkins doesn’t think there is just one model but rather; thousands.  Jeff has just released his new book, A thousand brains: a new theory of intelligence. It’s an inspiring and well-written book and I hope after watching this show; you will be inspired to read it too.  https://numenta.com/a-thousand-brains-by-jeff-hawkins/ https://numenta.com/blog/2019/01/16/the-thousand-brains-theory-of-intelligence/ Panel: Dr. Keith Duggar https://twitter.com/DoctorDuggar Connor Leahy https://twitter.com/npcollapse

#183 - Jeff Hawkins On The Human Mind And The Thousand Brain Theory Of Intelligence #AI


Jeff Hawkins is the founder of Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience in 2002 and Numenta in 2005. In his 2004 book titled On Intelligence, and in his research before and after, he and his team have worked to reverse-engineer the neocortex and propose artificial intelligence architectures, approaches, and ideas that are inspired by the human brain. His previous book, On Intelligence, was an impressive scientific journey into intelligence as a memory-prediction system for experiences and therefore vastly different than a computer. He compared a human brain’s neuron to two machine neurons: a traditional neural network neuron and his version of a more sophisticated one in the form of hierarchical temporal memory (HTM) cells. Almost 20 years later, he takes this earlier HTM concept to a higher plane and has truly established himself as both a formidable teacher and an ardent student of intelligence. His latest book, A Thousand Brains: A New Theory of Intelligence, is framed in the construct of how the neocortex represents object compositionally, object behaviors, and higher level concepts. The main premise is that every part of the neocortex learns complete models of objects and concepts, and that there are many such models of each object distributed throughout the neocortex that have long range connections (hence the title of the book).  https://numenta.com https://twitter.com/numenta https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EVqrDlAqYo https://www.ted.com/speakers/jeff_hawkins https://ai-med.io/analysis/a-thousand-brains-jeff-hawkins/ HELP ME CROWDFUND MY GAMESTOP BOOK.

#58: Jeff Hawkins on Tackling the Big Problems

Cognitive Revolution

Jeff Hawkins is one of my favorite neuroscientists ever. He does the kind of big, ambitious projects I love to see people going after. The driving question of his research is no less than "How does the neocortex work?" He wants to solve intelligence, and he wants to do it the way the brain does. Jeff is an innovative in mobile computing and is widely known as the founder of Palm and the creator of the Palm Pilot. He saw the big picture in that space before anyone else did, and the smart money says that the same goes for his theory of the brain. I read Jeff's 2004 book, "On Intelligence," and it made a big impact on me. His latest book, "A Thousand Brains: A new theory of intelligence" is out now, and details his latest progress on figuring out how the brain really works. In this conversation, we talk about Jeff's early experience, particularly balancing his success in business with his love for neuroscience, as well as the origin of the ideas he lays out in A Thousand Brains. Our conversation gets a bit heated toward the end. But I think it's a healthy difference of opinion, as I am a great admirer of Jeff and his team's work.Book list:
