Inventor of the Palm Pilot Launches Open Source Brain Like Software
It’s pretty intuitive to assume that the way the brain learns is a better way to organise and find data than we use today, and therefore that studying the wiring of the brain and the way it changes could improve the way we manage data, improving relevance. Now one man, Jeff Hawkins, has set out to harness all the people who may be working already to do this and bring them together via a new open source project.
Moreover his company’s research into artificial intelligence learning software has been made open source to kick start the project.
“Google’s mission statement is to organize the world’s information,” says Taylor. “I like to think of our mission as understanding the world’s data” said says Matthew Taylor, head of the open source project, called GROK. The open source software platform is called NuPIC (Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing). NuPIC is based on models of the human cortex and how it rewires as it learns, so it responds continuously. These machine learning algorithms are called cortical learning algorithms, or CLA’s, and they intend to learn from the brains actual architecture how to further organise these CLA’s, for example around the brains 6 cortical layers.
This seems to be a real glimpse of the future of the internet.
