AIC Seminar Series

A New Theory of Neocortex and its Implications for Machine Intelligence

Jeff HawkinsRedwood Neuroscience Institute[Home Page]

Date:  2005-01-13 at 16:00

Location:  G building  (Directions)

   Abstract

The human neocortex is responsible for almost all high level thought, including vision, audition, language, and motor planning. The regions of the neocortex are organized in a hierarchy, where different regions of the hierarchy implement the same basic algorithm. In the past two years significant progress has been made in understanding exactly how the neocortex works and how the hierarchy leads to human thought and behavior. This knowledge suggests a new approach to solving long standing problems in perception, robotics, and in building intelligent machines. In this talk Jeff Hawkins will explain this theory and explore its implications for the future of AI. Details of the theory are published in a new book titled "On Intelligence" (www.OnIntelligence.org)"
