Out in the Open: Palm Pilot Inventor Wants to Open Source the Human Brain

See on Scoop.itTracking the Future

Everyone wants to make computers work more like the human brain these days.
There are more research projects than ever trying to unlock the mysteries of intelligence, ranging from government projects like the White House’s brain mapping initiative to corporate projects like Google’s ambitious artificial intelligence program to academic research like Stanford’s attempts to help computers understand human languages.
But computer scientist and entrepreneur Jeff Hawkins, who is best known as the inventor of the Palm Pilot, already has developed a unified theory of the brain’s inner workings and created algorithms for applying the theory to computer science. What’s more, he has open-sourced his work so anyone can use the algorithms and software to build their own machine learning systems — for free.
