Hierarchical Temporal Memory Concepts , Theory , and Terminology

  title={Hierarchical Temporal Memory Concepts , Theory , and Terminology},
  author={J. Hawkins and D. George},
HTMs are unlike traditional programmable computers. With traditional computers, a programmer creates specific programs to solve specific problems. For example, one program may be used to recognize speech and another completely different program may be used to model weather. HTM, on the other hand, is best thought of as a memory system. HTMs are not programmed and do not execute different algorithms for different problems. Instead, HTMs “learn” how to solve problems. HTMs are trained by exposing… Expand
