Since I didn't get anyone else standing up with a "deep" topic for tonight, I'm proposing that we look at the cortical algorithm put forward by Hawkins in On Intelligence, and then see if we can hash out how you'd go about creating such a thing in Python (efficiently enough to make it useful).
We'll be at Linux Caffe, as usual.
[Update] Grr, turns out the algorithm Hawkins described is patented. At least, some aspect of their implementation in software is. I'd have to look into whether you can patent direct mapping of biological processes, but I'm guessing at least in the States and Canada you can (you can patent anything here, seemingly). Which seems like a pretty good way to just kill research in the area. Oh well, guess we'll discuss the general case more than their particular algorithm.
