MEDIA ALERT: Numenta’s Research VP Subutai Ahmad to Present at Cognitive Computing Forum 2014

Numenta, Inc., a leader in the emerging field of machine intelligence, today announced its participation in the Cognitive Computing Forum 2014, to be held at the Saint Claire Hotel in San Jose, CA on August 20-21, 2014.

The Cognitive Computing Forum was designed to bring together technology leaders and explore the new world of Cognitive Analytics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reasoning and next generation AI.

At this event, Subutai Ahmad, Numenta’s Vice President for Research, will speak on “Understanding Cortical Principles and Building Intelligent Machines.” Understanding the computational principles underlying the neocortex and building intelligent machines based on those principles is at the core of Numenta. At its most basic level the cortex takes in a stream of sensory data, builds a sensorimotor model of the world and outputs a stream of motor actions. In his talk, Subutai will describe the cortical principles behind these functions, and how they can be translated into a working system.

Numenta’s core ideas have been validated in commercial streaming analytics applications and an optimized implementation is available in the open source project NuPIC.

Ahmad initially led Numenta’s Engineering team and currently oversees its Research. He brings a background in research and product experience in computational neuroscience, real time systems, computer vision, and machine learning. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Cornell University, and a PhD in Computer Science (focus on Computational Neuroscience) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

What: Cognitive Computing Forum presentation – “Understanding Cortical Principles and Building Intelligent Machines”
Who: Subutai Ahmad, Numenta’s Vice President for Research
When: 3:10 p.m. August 20, 2014
Where: Saint Claire Hotel, San Jose, CA

About Numenta:

Numenta, Inc., was founded in 2005 to be a catalyst in the emerging field of machine intelligence. Its biologically inspired machine learning technology is based on a theory of the neocortex first described in co-founder Jeff Hawkins’ book, On Intelligence. The technology can be applied to anomaly detection in servers and applications, human behavior, and geo-spatial tracking data, and to the predication and classification of natural language. In addition, Numenta has created NuPIC (Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing) as an open source project. Based in Redwood City, CA, the company is privately funded.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
