    Navigating Numenta’s Brain Theory through a Progression of Papers

    For the near thirteen years that Numenta has existed, we have had two missions: reverse-engineer the neocortex to understand how we learn and behave and enable technology based on brain theory. While we sometimes refer to them as dual missions, the order matters. We’ve gone through different business models over the years-from focusing on a single product to building example applications to now focusing solely on neuroscience research and theory. Yet our primary mission has always been a scientific one....

    New Experiment Sheds Light on HTM Theory

    Numenta's HTM theory includes a detailed explanation for the role of neurons and minicolumns in cortical layers. We've been sharing this theory for years and publishing implementations in our open source project, NuPIC. The best description of this theory is in the following papers: Why Neurons Have Thousands of Synapses, A Theory of Sequence Memory in Neocortex and A Theory of How Columns in the Neocortex Enable Learning the Structure of the World....
