On Intelligence

On Intelligence by Jeff Hawkins with Sandra Blakeslee Times Books, September 2004

From Jeff Hawkins, the inventor of the PalmPilot and the Treo, comes a new theory of how the brain works. Jeff will talk about his memory prediction model of intelligence. He will present evidence from neuroscience for his theory and use it to shed light on basic questions about the human mind.

Not since McCulloch and Pitts has there been a brain model so interesting to computer science as Jeff Hawkin's memory-prediction model.
