Where Neuroscience Meets Machine Intelligence

Numenta is tackling one of the most important scientific challenges of all time: reverse engineering the neocortex. Studying how the brain works helps us understand the principles of intelligence and build machines that work on the same principles. We believe that understanding how the neocortex works is the fastest path to machine intelligence, and creating intelligent machines is important for the continued success of humankind.

What is the Thousand Brains Theory of Intelligence?

In October 2018 we released a major new theory for intelligence and cortical computation. We have several resources available for you to learn more.
