This review is from: On Intelligence (Hardcover)
If you think computers will one day become intelligent you should read this book. If you think computers won't one day become intelligent you should read this book. If you are interested in just how the brain takes sensory input and creates memories and actions you should read this book.
On Intelligence is such a good read for anyone interested in computer intelligence. Hawkins is a computer man talking about biology, analysing how the brain makes sense of the world. To what extent his theory about the neo-cortex's role in intelligence is accurate I cannot judge and only time will tell. But for this part-time programmer the operation of the brain now seems considerably less mysterious and the path to artifial intelligence seems a lot clearer.
One of the best books I have read for a long time.
