On Intelligence, Jeff Hawkins
Jeff Hawkins is another successful entrepreneur. Jeff is the founder of Palm Pilot, and in recent years has moved his interest to neuroscience. He established the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience and has an interesting point of view on smart machines, sensory augmentation and the roles of machines in this collaboration. Hawkins' views will seem refreshing following Kurzweil's cumbersome predictions of chips in brains and downloading life onto a server.
