Intelligent Machines?

MIT World » : Can a New Theory of the Neocortex Lead to Truly Intelligent Machines?:
"Talk about intelligent designs: Jeff Hawkins says he’s mapped out the way the
human brain works, and has begun to fashion thinking machines to emulate the
process. It comes down to Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM). Basically, he
says, our brains take sensory inputs from the world and build a set of beliefs
around the causes of those inputs. “Discovering causes is the pinnacle of what
brains do,” says Hawkins. "
