Connectome browser – hierarchy viewer?

Hierarchy Viewer? Ongoing research to map out the patterns of connectivity in the human brain continues to produce stunning visuals. Are we looking at the hierarchy as proposed in the Memory-Prediction framework? In any case, it’s fun to explore, which you can do here: http://www.humanconnectomeproject.org/data/relationship-viewer/

Thalamocortical architecture

by Gideon Kowadlo and David Rawlinson Introduction One of the keys to understanding the neocortex as a whole, and the emergence of intelligence, is to understand how the cortical hierarchical levels interconnect. This includes: the physical connections, the meaning of the signals being transmitted, and possibly also the way the… Read More »Thalamocortical architecture

Constraints on intelligence

by Gideon Kowadlo and David Rawlinson Introduction This article contains some musings on the factors that limit the increase of intelligence as a species. We speculate that ultimately, our level of intelligence is limited by at least two factors, and possibly a third: our own cultural development, physical constraints, and… Read More »Constraints on intelligence

Architecture of the Memory Prediction Framework / Cortical Learning Algorithm / Hierarchical Temporal Memory

by David Rawlinson and Gideon Kowadlo Introduction The Memory Prediction Framework (MPF) is a general description of a class of algorithms. Numenta’s Cortical Learning Algorithm (CLA) is a specific instance of the framework. Numenta’s Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) was an earlier instance of the framework. HTM and CLA adopt different… Read More »Architecture of the Memory Prediction Framework / Cortical Learning Algorithm / Hierarchical Temporal Memory

Introduction
