In this screencast, Jeff Hawkins narrates the presentation he gave at a workshop called “From Data to Knowledge: Machine-Learning with Real-time and Streaming Applications.” The workshop was held May 7-11, 2012 at the University of California, Berkeley.
Sparse distributed representations appear to be the means by which brains encode information. They have several advantageous properties including the ability to encode semantic meaning. We have created a distributed memory system for learning sequences of sparse distribute representations. In addition we have created a means of encoding structured and unstructured data into sparse distributed representations. The resulting memory system learns in an on-line fashion making it suitable for high velocity data streams. We are currently applying it to commercially valuable data streams for prediction, classification, and anomaly detection In this talk I will describe this distributed memory system and illustrate how it can be used to build models and make predictions from data streams.
