Next generation innovator pursuing the development of "intelligent" machines by reverse engineering the human neocortex and creating equivalent structures in silicon
Independent researcher currently based in Irvine, California, specializing in neuromorphic computing and AI hardware
Elegant Circuits: Simple Chaotic Oscillators (with J.C Sprott), World Scientific (2022)LTSpice Simulations
My current interests involves investigating the Thousand Brains theory of intelligence developed by Numenta Inc, and utilizing our modern understanding of the neocortex to design novel neural networks that can solve dynamic problems requring continuous learning. The development of intelligent machines will not only lead to advancements in health care through a better understanding of brain cognition, but is existentially important in continuing our legacy as a human species in gathering knowledge and exploring the universe.
