By using neuroanatomy and neurophysiology as a set of constraints, we believe that we have started to uncover how the brain uses hierarchy and time to create a model of the world, and to recognize novel patterns as part of that model. Hierarchically-organized memory is fundamentally different than the linear memory used in current computers, and therefore offers the potential for new computer architectures. Today, we are exploring and advancing this technology by using traditional computer architectures (benefited by multiple CPU cores) to emulate the hierarchical structure of the neocortex.
