    How Grid Cells Map Space

    The discovery of grid cells won the Nobel Prize in 2014, but do you know how they work? Working together in populations, grid cells create a cognitive map of space. Each cell responds to certain areas of space. Groups of grid cells called modules have the same projection properties onto space. Many grid cell modules working together can map a virtually infinite amount of space....

  • The 2018 Machine Intelligence Landscape: A New Look at MI vs ML vs DL vs AI
    The 2018 Machine Intelligence Landscape: A New Look at MI vs ML vs DL vs AI

    In 2016, Numenta co-founders Jeff Hawkins and Donna Dubinsky wrote a blog about the three major approaches to building machine intelligence: Classic AI, Simple Neural Networks, and Biological Neural Networks. This piece revisits each one and looks at the machine intelligence landscape today. Discover the state of the art, compare and contrast approaches, and understand fundamental limitations. Read why brain theory will be the future of machine intelligence....

    March Madness in the Mountains – Numenta’s Cosyne 2018 Report

    Scott Purdy and Subutai Ahmad recap Numenta's Cosyne 2018 experience and share the posters and talks they found interesting. This Cosyne, we presented two posters and a workshop, which led to meetings and several in-depth discussions with other neuroscientists. It was a busy, but very rewarding week!...

  • The Thousand Brains Model of Intelligence
    The Thousand Brains Model of Intelligence

    In our paper, A Theory of How Columns in the Neocortex Enable Learning the Structure of the World, we proposed that a single cortical column can learn models of complete objects through movement. Jeff Hawkins and Christy Maver explain our “Thousand Brains Model of Intelligence” and its implications for AI in this blog....

    Neuromorphic Chip Modeling Dendritic Spikes Debuts at NICE

    Neuromorphic chips, which emulate neurons in silicon, are essentially the hardware for the future of AI. The Human Brain Project’s Neuromorphic team recently unveiled a chip called BrainScaleS-2 that models neurons consistent with the model described in our 2016 paper “Why Neurons Have Thousands of Synapses.”...
