"Hawkins mostly talks about his thoughts on human and computer intelligence and the challenges of how to get computers to think more like humans. He describes how his company Numenta is building a more intelligent optical vision and pattern recognition computer technology platform. He calls it a "major advance in technology" and discloses that he has already built a small scale prototype. "
Some practical applications for this technology? One example is searching through your digital photo library for a specific person. Hawkins says that "auto manufacturers have been interested in sensors for cars that can visually recognize the alertness state or condition of the driver."
"My goal at Numenta is to put my brain theory into practice," said Hawkins. "We have the opportunity to build intelligent memory systems to solve difficult problems in computer science and artificial intelligence for which no other known solutions exist, such as general machine vision, language understanding, and robotics."
Donna Dubinsky, who was now works with Hawkins again and who was formerly the co-founder and CEO of Handspring, says " Although it may take several years before we have commercial products, the possibilities for this technology are exciting and broad."
