Episode 12: Conversation with Jeff Hawkins - On Defining Intelligence
In this episode, host Matt Taylor asks Numenta co-founder Jeff Hawkins to define intelligence. Jeff outlines 3 components of intelligence, and revisits them through the lens of the Thousand Brains theory of Intelligence. According to Jeff, "The bottom line is that Intelligence is only as good as the model that you build."

Episode 9: Interview with a Neuroscientist - Konrad Kording Part 2
Dr. Konrad Kording is a professor at University of Pennsylvania, known for his contributions to the fields of motor control, neural data methods, and computational neuroscience. He runs the Kording Lab, or K-Lab, which focused on computational neuroscience early on and now focuses on causality in data science applications. His lab has made an impact across many fields over time, including Bayesian brains, causal effects in human behavior, and uncertainty in the brain. In this episode, Matt Taylor interviews Dr. Kording over Skype about motor representations in the brain, intentionality, time-warping in neurons, and causality. A video of this episode is available on the HTM School YouTube channel.

Episode 7: Conversation with Numenta CEO Donna Dubinsky
After a couple episodes of deep neuroscience, co-host Christy Maver takes us back to the business side of things in an interview with Numenta CEO Donna Dubinsky. They discuss the challenge of navigating a dual mission, why she believes it’s important even for non-neuroscientists to understand how the brain works, and where she believes the company is going.

Episode 6: Interview with a Neuroscientist - Dr. Blake Richards
Blake Richards is Assistant Professor and Associate Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR). Author of the papers, “Toward deep learning with segregated dendrites” and “The Persistence and Transience of Memory,” Blake answers questions about how deep learning models can incorporate segregated dendrites, whether loss functions pertain to the neocortex and what it means to identify as a theoretical neuroscientist.

Episode 5: Interview with a Neuroscientist - Alex Vaughan
Alex Vaughan is a scientist and entrepreneur, founder of MapNeuro, Inc. He’s been working at Zador Lab on groundbreaking new ways of tracking neurons and mapping them. In this episode, Alex talks about the molecules in your brain and how they control you. he describes how viruses are used as a delivery mechanism for brain mapping barcodes. You’ll also find out how your brain is like a subway.It’s not easy to map the brain, but we’re starting to understand how, thanks to many fields of science contributing to our current technological toolset. Listen in to figure out how all fields of science are connected, and how business and science can be used together to better understand the brain and intelligence.
