Jeff Hawkins: Thousand Brains Theory | Machine Learning Street Talk Podcast

Our co-founder Jeff Hawkins was a guest on the Machine Learning Street Talk Podcast where he and the hosts (Dr. Tim ScarfeConnor Leahy, and Dr. Keith Duggar) discussed Numenta’s current machine learning work and how the Thousand Brains Theory influences the machine learning space.

The episode is split into three parts. Tim starts with a detailed 50-min introduction explaining our work and research journey at Numenta. He intersperses quotes from A Thousand Brains, quotes from other researchers and his personal beliefs. The next hour-plus is the interview with Jeff where they dove into the more technical details. The show wraps up with a 20-min debrief among the 3 hosts where they give their candid thoughts.
