Neocortex Hierarchy and Parallelism

Reading Time: 1 minute

According to the researchers, the neocortex contains thousands of models functioning not only in hierarchy, but also in parallel. Itโ€™s an innovative theory that challenges conventional views, and may impact both artificial intelligence and neuroscience in the future.

  1. Meh! I’m not seeing anything new here….at least not from that article and not enough novelty to push me to dig further.

  2. With all the time spent on our cellphones, jumping to AI isn’t going to be that much of a stretch

  3. I’ve always thought the idea of a single “subconscious” overly simplistic. Hundreds of cortical mini-columns are chewing away at available data all the time, creating dozens of trains of thought. One of these gets sorted out as highly revelant and becomes our internal dialog of consciousness. When one of these lines of thought suddenly gets promoted, we have the “a-ha” moment of sudden inspiration or rememberance. Multiple lines of thought composed of hierarchy.

  4. REMEMBER THAT THE LIMBIC SYSTEM SERVES THE MIGHTIEST FUNCTIONS IN THE HUMAN MIND/BRAIN. ALL THAT YOU RECEIVE THROUGH YOUR FIVE SENSES, ALL DESIRES OF THE HUMAN MIND/ BRAIN MUST BE PROCESSED IN THE LIMBIC SYSTEM. THE THALAMUS IS THE PROCESSOR OF THE ENTIRE MIND/ BRAIN THAT’S THE MAJOR COMPONENT OF THE LIMBIC SYSTEM. THE LIMBIC SYSTEM IS THE POWER HOUSE OF THE HUMAN MIN ORIGIN OF THE MIND/ BRAIN. INSTINCTS EXIST IN THE OLDEST PART OF THE BRAIN AND ALL ANIMALS WITH A CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM KNOWN AS THE LIMBIC SYSTEM.

    WE LIVE TO FULFILL THE HUNGERS OF THE LIMBIC SYSTEM( HEART, SUBCONSCIOUS; AND, THE SOUL KNOWN IN THE BIBLE WHERE THE SPIRIT IS THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE HUMAN MIND).

  5. Jeff Hawkins and company have been working on the hierarchical cortical model for several years and it’s a brilliant diversion from what has become a dumb mainstream for AI (machine learning, including ‘deep learning’) because it is a major step towards an actual brain-based architecture. The only (entirely forgivable forgivable at this point) flaw is failure to take the architecture whole-brain (as Sam Reich points toward above). Cortex is where the core computation is done, and the idea that it is build of rather neat (for an organic brain at least) elemental blocks that can be emulated is a really big thing, IMO.

  6. zYOU”RE JUST A BUNCH OF MONKEYS WITH A SHORT LIFE-SPAN THINKING YOU”RE ON TO SOMETHING BIG THAT WOULD BENEFIT YOUR LIVES AND THE WORLD. BY FAR GOD”S CREATION OF THE EVOLUTED BRAIN OF THE HOMOSAPIENS CERTAINLY DOESN”T GIVE YOU ANY EXTENSION ON YOUR LIVES; AND, YOU”RE NO GODS TO LIVE TO SEE YOUR GLORY OF YOUR WORK

  9. WHAT AM I THINKING IS THE GREAT DISCOVERY BOZOS.

    THAT”S GOD”S TURF. CAN YOU GET A GRIP ON TRUE REALITY??

  10. LET ME CLUE YOU SO-CALLED SELF- PROCLAIMED SCIENTIST THAT SORRY TO SAY THAT YOU ARE ONLY BEGINNING TO SCRATCH THE SURFACE ON THE BRAIN”S TRUE DESIGN. ONLY A GOD CAN CREATE THROUGH THE SUBATOMIC FORCES TO EVOLVE MAN AND THE GOD-LIKE HUMAN BRAIN.

    SORRY, ; BUT, IT WON”T HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE SPAN TO GLORY FROM YOUR WORKS OF ANY SIGNIFICANT CHANGE FOR THE WELL BEING OF MAN”S MENTAL ILLNESSES. THAT IS A REASON FOR RESEARCH.

    FRANKLY, THERE”S FAR TOO MUCH DATA TO GATHER TO GET ANY EXCITEMENT FROM THIS PASS ANALYSIS AND FORMATTING OF THE HUMAN BRAIN. YOU’RE ACTING LIKE CHILDREN.

  11. TO CLUE YOU GUYS IN WE”VE GOT 1,000 YEARS LEFT BEFORE WE CREATE.

  12. NOW THAT IS WHAT SCIENCE IS ALL ABOUT.

    TO TAKE THE CREATION INTO OUR VERY OWN HANDS AND CREATE FOR OURSELVES.

  13. THIS HAS BEEN A GROWNUP TIME FOR YOU SO-CALLED NEURO-SCIENTIST.

  14. Mysterious Madness indeed… Evidently as in Mysteriously!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  15. Sam Reich …Yes, Time to Grow up in Maturity…FAST ๐Ÿ˜Ž!!

  16. LOKE SAN, HAVING A THRILL IN DISCOVERY OF HOW THE HUMAN BRAIN FUNCTIONS IS A NECESSITY. THIS FUELS THE LONG PERIODS INBETWEEN DISCOVERYS ; AND, KEEPS THE FIRE BURNING. WE NEED EVER SO OFTEN DISCOVERYS TO KEEP THE FINANCING FOR OUR RESEARCH GOING.

  17. Sam Reich SAM , … SOMETIMES One do need to GO Beyond words of Exchange in order to Express feelings of Compassionate converging Mindset Settings into One Drive Like Oneness instead of having two Drivers… Nowadays Driverless Drones can do Almost โ€œeverythingโ€ truly means Nothing is Specifically โ€œImpossibleโ€ … Except SEX, ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿคฉ Specifically or Supernaturally!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž…

  18. Sam Reich Yes… SO Called stupid sss indeed is the Dumbest FOOL in Deed… Definitely ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ!!!!

  19. Chris Welty NEW And Newer MODELS Every Year indeed indicates Timespan SPACE within Quantum Space and Pace like a Period Of RnR … Recreation and Rest… Realistically ๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  20. Why we need much more Reasons on the Correctness in โ€œorderโ€ to be Exact as in Specifics instead of โ€œVirtual Realityโ€ indeed is truly about RATIONALITY just like intelligence so as to get to the Correct Place in the Current Market PLACE… Specifically ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  21. Sam Reich Yes… Metaphysical Machines indeed like Robots …. Just like the mummies or the Waking Dead… Definitely ๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  22. YOUR LEARNING MOLDS YOUR BRAINS NEUROCONNECTIONS.

  23. Sam Reich SPEED indeed indicates Time factor will Make the Difference …Quantum Speed in Deed will Quicken The Awakening process…. LIKE it or not, Believe or not, THATโ€™S The Reality Of instant Awakening, Realistically ๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  24. Whatever Connections or LINK indeed is of no Value or worth without the Willingness to Follow … Completely or Wholeheartedly!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  25. IT”S FUNNY HOW WE NEED SPEED TO REDUCE TIME. WHAT RELATIONSHIP IS TIME AND SPEED HAVING WHEN THEY MEET UP WITH EACH OTHER??

  26. Yes… the Mind is intimately โ€œconnected or linkedโ€ to the Heart… Spiritually as in Specifically or Naturally lIke Normally!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  27. LOKE SON, YOUR REASONING GETS YOU SCRAMBLED EGGS FOR BREAKFAST!!!

  28. Sam Reich … Yes, when Minds Meet Mysteriously indeed is an Encounter to BEHOLD And Beware… Absolutely ๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  29. Yes… Souls of the Universe indeed is a Great Gathering to BEHOLD… Absolutely ๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  30. LOKE SAN, YOUR BOAT IS STAYING A FLOAT WHILE YOUR REASONING IS SINKING IT!!!

  31. LOKE SAN, YOU”RE BECOMING MYSTERIOUS.

    WHAT IS GOD WHEN IT COMES TO THE HUMAN

    MIND/BRAIN???

  32. Sam Reich HAHAHAHA!!! … Time for a Dip in the Deep Blue SEA.. ??? ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‡…

  33. Sam Reich …God to you indeed is not the Same as it is to me, Absolutely๐Ÿ˜Ž!!!

  34. LOOK WHAT”S HAS BECOME OF LOKE SAN”S CONCLUSION!!!!

    A NEUROSCIENTIST???? ARE YOU SURE??
