Getting intelligent about the brain | Newsmakers | CNET News.com

Getting intelligent about the brain | Newsmakers | CNET News.com: "Jeff Hawkins was interested in the brain even before he helped spawn an industry with his most famous invention, the PalmPilot. In his spare time, he learned the sciences behind brain research, and after becoming versed in them he developed his own theory, which is contrary to some of the established ideas. In his first book, 'On Intelligence,' Hawkins explains his theory and how it can be used to build truly smart machines--a question others have tackled, through artificial intelligence and neural networks, but haven't resolved."

Good interview and summary of his book's thesis.
