Jeff Hawkins on Artificial Intelligence – Part 1/5

The founder of Palm, Jeff Hawkins, solves the mystery of Artificial Intelligence and presents his theory at the RSA Conference 2008. He gives a brief tutorial on the neocortex and then explains how the brain stores memory and then describes how to use that knowledge to create artificial intelligence. This lecture is insightful and his theory will revolutionize computer science.

  1. This is very cool. Artificial intelligence is constantly improving and making life easier for us. I think it is even more incredible because not only can it be used to make our lives more convenient it can be used to improve the lives of those with disabilities. I think that the leaps AI has made over the years is amazing!

  2. We have just launched the new update for the first voice assisted app with artificial intelligence on Android. Also you can search your nearest shops. Get it here:play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.proxy.voiceanswer

  3. I’m working on a software to make it easy to create artificial brain parts and connect them. It also allows you to modify variables and run methods WHILE running, using reflection. When its done, I’m going to start working on creating an AI so this is very intressting to listen to 😀

  4. a more correct wording would be that ‘current programs that you are aware of don’t perceive the world as we perceive it’. and yes, that’s true- but there’s no reason for the impossibility of a computer program perceiving the world as we perceive it. But I do ask- why does it need to perceive the world as we do? intelligence takes many forms, and ultimately, it’s about problem solving, not semantics.

  5. Listen to what he says from 6:30 to 8:05 . Then listen to the researchers in charge of IBM’s Watson AI here: watch?v=d_yXV22O6n4 Amazing how far we’re getting.

  6. I watched this guy and found the complete film to be inspiring stuff. Subsequently I invented a piece of code in my head one evening called “self aware opcode” – and as far as I found, the ‘opcode’ did indeed appear to render my laptop self-aware. So I uploaded “self aware laptop” to youtube, now have packard bell and an ibm computer successfully run “selfawaresilicon.exe” too, so it’s exciting. However, it needs to be progressed further!

  7. Computers might give us answers, but it seems these will never come up with revealing questions; as those even a child might ask. Certainly, computers don’t perceive the world as we perceive it.
