Numenta white paper

Numenta published a white paper a while back.

It describes in a nutshell the hierarchical memory-prediction framework (they call it Hierarchical Temporal Memory) put forth in the On Intelligence book.

It also gives out a lot of interesting implementation details on how learning and prediction works. The hints on using HTMs for different applications are also thought-provoking.

The most intriguing feature, is the use of probability distributions for matching patterns. While it seems reasonable after one considers it, matching patters always tricked me into matching exact patterns.

I will start working on this probability distribution approach as soon as possible. So stay tuned.

Hi, this is an interesting beginning. You may want to check our and/or join the related project Neocortex. It is a working version of the ideas described in Jeff Hawkins' "On Intellingence".
See http://sourceforge.net/projects/neocortex/ and also http://www.phillylac.org/prediction/index.htm for more details about this project.
