Here's a new article about Jeff's Hawkins latest startup, called Numenta, is on its way to creating the first truly intelligent computer - a thinking machine that, in essence, learns the same way the human brain does.

Numenta has nothing to do with the field known as artificial intelligence. Their approach is radically different.

Computers running Numenta software will not be programmed like regular computers. Rather, algorithms that Numenta has come up with allow machines to learn from observation, just as a child learns by observing the world around her.

A white paper describing Hierarchical Temporal Memory is now available, and can be downloaded here (PDF).
