《A Thousand Brains》简介:

For all of neuroscience's advances, we've made little progress on its biggest question: How do simple cells in the brain create intelligence?

Jeff Hawkins and his team discovered that the brain uses maplike structures to build a model of the world-not just one model, but hundreds of thousands of models of everything we know. This discovery allows Hawkins to answer important questions about how we perceive the world, why we have a sense of self, and the origin of high-level thought.

A Thousand Brains heralds a revolution in the understanding of intelligence. It is a big-think book, in every sense of the word.

《A Thousand Brains》摘录:

Knowledge in the brain is distributed. Nothing we know is stored in one place, such as one cell or one column. ... This is why we call it the Thousand Brains Theory: knowledge of any particular item is distributed among thousands of complementary models.
