AI Garden Party: What is Intelligence, that a Machine Might Have Some?

What is Intelligence, that a Machine Might Have Some?
What is the legacy that we should be aiming for? What is intelligence itself? What should we do to try to build intelligent machines? What might these machines look like in the future and what will they do? In this amazing cocktail event we will watch a live stream of a talk by Jeff Hawkins from Numenta that will cover the biological components of intelligence, the functional components of intelligence and the diversity of intelligence machines.

CLAKULA Productions is happy to organize a live stream AI Garden Party. The Live Stream is provided by NeuroTechX and Indiegogo, which are proud to host Jeff Hawkins, co-founder of Numenta, who will give a talk titled, “What is Intelligence, that a Machine Might Have Some?”

There’s no question that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is hotter than ever. Yet as interest continues to grow, so do the number of interpretations of AI itself. Numenta’s approach lays the groundwork for the new era of Machine Intelligence. Led by Hawkins, the company’s mission is to reverse engineer the neocortex to build intelligent machines. This approach, which is not just biologically inspired, but biologically constrained, is based on the understanding that the brain is the only example we have of an intelligent system.

While there’s more work to be done, Numenta has made great progress toward a computational theory of the neocortex called HTM. At the core of HTM are time-based learning algorithms that store and recall spatial and temporal patterns. It is distinguished from other techniques in its ability to learn continuously in a fully unsupervised manner.

Don’t miss the chance to hear Jeff speak on this fascinating topic!
