>From Tech Central Station, good review of an interesting book: In an
important new book, On Intelligence, written with assistance from
Sandra Blakeslee, Jeff Hawkins, the inventor of the Palm Pilot, takes
the view that abstract thinking and sensory perception are aspects of
the same mental process.
Hawkins believes that by studying the architecture of the brain we can
learn better ways to build intelligent machines. Accordingly, his book
tries to provide the reader with a state-of-the-art view of how the
brain functions.
Hawkins focuses on the brain as constantly trying to establish
patterns and using trial-and-error exploration to fit those patterns
to real-world experience.
