Biography

Jeff Hawkins is an engineer, serial entrepreneur, scientist, inventor, and author. He was a founder of two mobile computing companies, Palm and Handspring, and was the architect of many computing products such as the PalmPilot and Treo smartphone. Throughout his life Jeff has also had a deep interest in neuroscience and theories of the neocortex. In 2002 he founded the Redwood Neuroscience Institute, a scientific institute focused on understanding how the neocortex processes information. The institute is now located at U.C. Berkeley.
In 2004 he wrote the book On Intelligence, which describes progress on understanding the neocortex. In 2005 he co-founded Grok (formerly known as Numenta), a startup company building a technology based on neocortical theory. It is his hope that Grok will play a catalytic role in the emerging field of machine intelligence.

Jeff Hawkins earned his B.S. in electrical engineering from Cornell University in 1979. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2003.

About Numenta

Numenta, Inc. was formed in 2005 to develop biologically-inspiredmachine intelligence technology for both commercial and scientific use.

What is NuPIC?

NuPIC, the Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing, comprises a set of learning algorithms that were first described in a white paper published by Numenta in 2009. The learning algorithms faithfully capture how layers of neurons in the neocortex learn. The white paper has been translated into seven languages by volunteers and has generated considerable interest among developers and research scientists.

    I registered here some time ago but Skills Matter is now full (I thought I just had to create an account there once, not register for each talk) - will I still be able to attend the talk? I would like to know so I can free up a space and change plans if necessary.

    Thanks

    Alex

    • Ali S.

      Yes, you can.

    I am really sorry. It seems difficult for me to get out of work on time.

    April 15, 2014

  • Alexander C.

    Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to get out of work in time, so my spot is free. Enjoy!

  • Sri

    I got a spot woohoo! Cheers to those who kept us posted about not being able to make it

  • Rebecca M.

    Sorry, got a place this morning, but can't make it at short notice. I've changed my reservation so that there is a space for someone else.

    Hi I understand the presentation will take place over the internet. Will it be possible to watch remotely?
    I have booked a place, but won't be able to come to London.
    Kind Regards

  • Amir S.

    Hey, I have a place booked here, but didn't realize that I needed to register elsewhere as well. And now on SM page it says I will be on a waiting list. So do you guys know what to do or why there're discrepancies between counts here and there?

    April 15, 2014

  • Dan B.

    I can't make it, have unsubscribed from this event on both sites to free up a place.

    April 14, 2014

  • Michael K.

    **To guarantee a place you must register on the SM page as well .** - is that serious? why is this event then having a attendee list on both sides? this is very confusing...

    April 14, 2014

  • Tariq R.

    I can't make it so have freed up my slot.

    April 6, 2014

    • Sri

      On waiting list hopeful one step closer now cheers

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
