Alex Lavin is a researcher at the intersection of artificial intelligence and neuroscience. As a Software Engineer with Numenta, he's working to build intelligent machines by reverse engineering the neocortex. Alex's focus is in natural language processing, or developing algorithms that enable computers to process and understand human language. Alex studied mechanical and aerospace engineering at Cornell, and robotics at Carnegie Mellon. He was recently selected to the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Science.

Alex will be presenting via webinar and his company Numenta who's a leader in this new era of machine intelligence is kind enough to be sending us some materials and giveaways so we will be able to share in some first hand data coming from this exciting field of Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) which is detailed computational theory based on the neocortex.

This will be an interactive webinar for those that can not make it in person. DM me your email so I can send you an invite where you will be able to ask Alex and the group questions.
