Geek celebrity moment

My friend Chris recently got to meet Jeff Hawkins (neuroscientist, founder of Palm Computing and Handspring, inventor of the Palm Pilot and the Treo, author of On Intelligence, founder of Numenta, developer of the idea of “Hierarchical Temporary Memory”):

“Can you sign my Palm Pilot?”

Pretty nifty! Chris gets to play with Numenta’s HTM software at his job at APL (lucky bastard). But everyone else can play, too, because the software is available to everyone here: Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing (NuPIC). Get your A.I. on!
