Automation Analog

"After reading Jeff Hawkins, On Intelligence a few years back, I decided to follow what he has been doing in the field of what I call 'cognitive bio-mimicry'.

Numenta's Grok software is the latest. I find it particularly of interest in the study of genomics. In fact, I suspect there will be considerable cross fertilization between the fields."

It seems as though machine cognition has emerged without a direct explicit effort to make it happen. Generic pattern recognition 'copied' because the capability is so useful may have led the way.

With identity-centric big data we may well see an acceleration in machine-born lifelike 'thinking'. The very high level of abstraction almost guarantees it.
