Episode 38 of the Brain Science Podcast is an interview with Jeff Hawkins, author of "On Intelligence." Hawkins is well-known for founding Palm Computing and Handspring. He invented the Grafitti handwriting recognition system and helped develop the Palm Trio SmartPhone. Since he published his bestseller "On Intelligence" he has worked full-time on his passion for neuroscience. His current company, Numenta, is developing software that models the hierarchal structure of the neocortex. In this interview we talk about the ideas in Hawkins book and how he is applying them to develop a computer model of cortical function. This is a follow-up to Episode 2, which first aired in December of 2006.
