Neuroscience and artificial intelligence expert, Jeff Hawkins, recently gave a Google Tech Talk, where he discussed recent advances in understanding the neocortex and how we are applying them to model millions of high velocity data streams.
According to neuroscience and artificial intelligence expert, Jeff Hawkins, the neocortex works on principles that are fundamentally different than traditional computers.

In this Tech Talk from Google, Hawkins discusses recent advances in understanding the neocortex and how we are applying them to model millions of high velocity data streams.

The talk starts with a description of sparse distributed representations, which are the fundamental units of information in brains. He then discuss how these representations are learned and how the brain processes them to build predictive models from sensory data.

Hawkins' company, Numenta has built a product called Grok that emulates these capabilities of the neocortex.

Grok is being used to understand high velocity machine generated data in many different domains. I will give a brief introduction to Grok and speculate on the future of machine intelligence.

At the end of the talk, Hawkins takes questions, including one from Google's new head of engineering, Ray Kurzweil.
