Technology Review article on Numenta

Thanks to Martin for bringing this article to my attention. It discusses how the new alorithms are sufficiently powerful that commercial applications of the technology are now imminent. I thought it was interesting that Itamar Arel was quoted with positive things to say about Numenta's tech. I have mentioned him before on this blog, and have wondered why he hasn't worked more closely with Numenta since they have similar goals. Arel has a competing deep learning system known as DESTIN that Ben Goertzel wants to use as the sensory perception portion of a child-like robot (if there is such a thing, the idea of a child-like robot seems to be a bit creepy to me as the parent of living, breathing children). Here the link to the article:
