A Unifying View of Deep Networks and Hierarchical Temporal Memory

Browsing the NUPIC Theory mailing list, I came across a post by Fergal Byrne on the differences and similarities between Deep Learning and MPF/HTM. It’s a great background into some of the pros and cons of each. Given the popularity and demonstrated success of Deep Learning methods it’s good to understand… Read More »A Unifying View of Deep Networks and Hierarchical Temporal Memory

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

by David Rawlinson and Gideon Kowadlo   The Blog This blog will be written by several people. Other contributors are welcome – send us an email to introduce yourself! The content will be a series of short articles about a set of common architectures for artificial general intelligence (AGI). Specifically,… Read More »Introduction
