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
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.

Discussions about cloud computing are evolving into discussions about enterprise IT in general. As enterprises increasingly migrate toward their own unique clouds, new issues such as the use of containers and microservices emerge to keep things interesting. In this Power Panel at 16th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the state of cloud computing today, and what enterprise IT professionals need to know about how the latest topics and trends affect t...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

WebRTC converts the entire network into a ubiquitous communications cloud thereby connecting anytime, anywhere through any point. In his session at WebRTC Summit,, Mark Castleman, EIR at Bell Labs and Head of Future X Labs, will discuss how the transformational nature of communications is achieved through the democratizing force of WebRTC. WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
