Turning point for HTM- Vitamin D releases first commercial HTM app.
Earlier this month, Vitamin D, Inc. issued a press release noting that it released a beta of video surveillance software based on Numenta's hierarchical temporal memory. This is the first commercial application of HTM, which represents a significant milestone for the technology. The software has been trained to recognize the presence of people in videos, which marks a significant improvement over less intelligent technologies that simply look for motion in video. It sounds as though future versions of the software will be able to distinguish different actions taken by people, which should open up many further commercial HTM possibilities. This is only the beginning for commercial HTM apps.
