NOTE: Numenta has announced a strategic partnership with Avik Partners, please read more about the future of Grok for IT Analytics.

We’ve had a busy summer at Numenta. Since the launch of our first product, Grok for IT Analytics on Amazon Web Services (AWS), we’ve created a variety of demonstration applications to showcase the breadth of the underlying Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) technology. We’ve also restructured our web site to highlight these new applications.

First, let me give you an update on our product, Grok. We recently released version 1.5 which incorporates a great new web charting feature. In addition, we decided to eliminate the paid version of Grok in order to make it super easy for customers to try and to deploy Grok. If you are running an AWS installation but haven’t tried out Grok, you can do so here.

Then, in addition to Grok, we’ve created a group of demonstration applications to show the potential use of our core technology in a variety of areas. We’ve published white papers on two of the demonstrations:

  • Geospatial Tracking: using 2D or 3D speed and location data, learn travel patterns and detect anomalies in objects or people moving through the world

  • Rogue Behavior Detection: Model human behavioral patterns to highlight anomalies in employee actions such as financial trading patterns, computer and device usage, and internal system access.

An additional demonstration application looks at anomalies in stock volume tracking. We are in our initial exploration of this application, but you can read more about it in this blog entry.

Finally, we are doing some very exciting research with our partner Cortical IO on using HTM to predict and classify language using semantic encoding.

We are getting more visibility for our progress as we start to showcase these applications. You may want to read Dean Takahashi of VentureBeat’s article here.

On August 20, Subutai Ahmad, our VP of Research will present “Understanding Cortical Principles and Building Intelligent Machines” at the Cognitive Computing Forum in San Jose. If you’re interested, register using the discount code NUMENTA.

I’d like to add a welcome to Celeste Baranski, who has joined us as VP Engineering, taking over the daily operations of our engineering group, enabling Subutai to dedicate himself to research and writing.

Finally, we’re happy to celebrate the first anniversary of the creation of our NuPIC open source project. NuPIC interest has grown steadily, and we are pleased to see the strength and commitment building in this community.

We will continue to update you as we build the demonstration applications into full-featured applications and as our research efforts continue.

Thank you for your ongoing interest in Numenta.
